TxDOT TO BEGIN LAST ROUND OF DEBRIS PICK UP ALONG STATE RIGHT OF WAY

BEAUMONT – Beginning November 1, TxDOT will begin the final round of debris pick up along state roadways in Jefferson, Orange, Hardin, Chambers, Liberty, Tyler, Jasper and Newton County. Residents living along state roadways should place any debris generated by Tropical Storm Harvey along state right of way for pickup.

The right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. Keep vegetative debris (woody burnable debris such as limbs and shrubbery) separated from construction and demolition debris, as they will be collected separately.

Clear bagged and loose debris will be collected. Any household hazardous waste, roof shingles or tires resulting from the storm, may be eligible for removal and should be separated at the curb. Pick up of hazardous materials and appliances will follow one week behind other debris collection.

Do not place near water meter vault, fire hydrant or any other above-ground utility. Only debris placed on the right of way will be eligible for collection.

For more information, contact Sarah Dupre at Sarah.Dupre@txdot.gov or (409) 898-5745.
