Storm Debris Staging Sites To Close March 15
Aiken County started the process of storm debris clean up on Monday, February 24.
This process will continue for the next several weeks. Southern Disaster Recovery, Aiken County’s contractor, will be moving throughout the County using multiple crews, at the same time, to ensure an efficient clean-up of the County. While SDR will be providing clean-up of County-owned roads, please note that private driveways are not included in this pick-up process.
If you did not get your ice-storm related tree debris and vegetation to the roadway before the crews made their first pass, they will be making a second pass. This second pick-up will occur approximately two to three weeks out. It is important that all ice storm related debris be brought to your road frontage for collection in this time frame.
There are several things to remember when placing vegetation and limbs next to the roadway:
Aiken County will close its three established storm debris staging sites after Saturday, March 15:
With this deadline coming-up, it is important that citizens bring their storm debris to these collection sites or move it to the roadway.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has already conducted a preliminary damage assessment throughout Aiken County. Any funds that are provided to our local government agency will be used to cover the expense of debris removal from roads/right-of-ways and public properties. It is not anticipated that FEMA will provide any individual assistance for storm clean-up.
HOUSEHOLD WASTE must be taken to a Drop Off Convenience Center.
