1 min read

As the cleanup efforts from Hurricane Michael continue, the city of Bainbridge released the following reminders about debris removal to residents.

As the U.S. Corp of Engineers contractors move through Bainbridge and Decatur County, residents should be aware that their contractors will make three passes through each neighborhood and area.

Residents are asked to separate building materials from leaf and limb debris and place piles within 10 feet of roadway. If possible, cut debris into pieces no longer than 15 feet.

Building debris will be collected on the last pass only.

The Corps of Engineers’ contractors are the only ones who are providing storm related debris removal at this time.

The City of Bainbridge Public Works crews are out and are servicing commercial districts.

They are also assisting the U.S. Corp of Engineers contractors with the removal of debris infringing into intersections and around fire hydrants and water meters.
