Flood debris pickup to begin soon in unincorporated areas of Hays County


Submitted report

Property owners in the unincorporated area of Hays County should move storm or flood debris from the October 30-31 storms and floods to their curbs or right-of-way to be picked up by County debris removal teams. Debris should not be placed in the roadway and will be collected only in the areas of the county identified as being affected by the storms.

Sort debris into three separate types: brush/wood/building materials, large appliances/sheet metal, and general household trash.

Property owners are encouraged to begin moving debris to the right-of-way or curb as soon as possible. Debris pickup will begin when monitors determine there is enough debris to make pickup feasible and is expected to continue for about two weeks. The County has contracted with TFR Enterprises, Inc., to monitor and pick up debris.

Properties that are in isolated areas may not be noticed immediately by the monitoring teams that will be surveying neighborhoods in the affected areas. Owners of such properties should send their name, address and general information about the amount of debris to floodstormdamage@co.hays.tx.us.

Many cities in Hays County are making specific arrangements for their residents to dispose of debris from the October 30-31 storms and floods. Property owners living inside city limits should contact their city government for their specific debris removal plans; often that information can be found on a city’s website.
