James City County Storm Debris Cleanup
James City County will complete the second round of tree debris collection by November 14. Large tree stumps and demolition debris will be collected by November 21. A final round of storm debris collection will take place December 1-7, 2003. Each street serviced by James City County will receive one final collection. Debris must be roadside by November 30, 2003, to ensure service. Bagged debris will not be collected on the final round. This is a contracted service so no additional collections can be provided to any residence once that street has been given a final collection. All collections will be completed by December 7.
Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is collecting storm debris on the County primary and secondary roads (for example: Centerville, Croaker, Ironbound, Jamestown, Mooretown, Richmond Roads). Residents who live on these roads can direct their questions to VDOT at 253-4832.
Branches, limbs and tree trunks should be placed next to the roadway for collection. Material can be up to ten feet long. Stumps/root balls will be collected if they are out of the ground and placed at the curb. Please remove as much dirt as possible. Do not mix with other materials.
Construction / Housing Debris
Debris from damaged houses and water damaged large furnishings should also be placed at the roadside for collection. Material that will be collected includes lumber, plywood, roofing materials, sheetrock, siding, insulation, wire, cables, furniture, and carpeting. Do not mix with other materials.
White Goods and other Metals
Appliances damaged from the storm including refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, washers, and dryers should be placed at the roadside along with other metals. Do not mix with other materials. Doors must be removed from refrigerators and freezers and all food must be removed.
Place these materials in separate piles at the roadside. Do not mix the different materials into one pile.
Do not place regular household trash in the piles for special collection.
Do not place materials near mail boxes or fire hydrants.
Do not place materials under power lines or near power poles.
Do not place materials over water meters or manhole covers.
If you have a grinder pump, do not place material over cleanouts or vents.
