Public Works explains FEMA debris pickup instructions

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Bowling Green Public Works conveyed messages about tornado debris pickup from FEMA. FEMA will pick up debris from the curb or edge of pavement by contractors.

FEMA said the debris needs to be separated properly.

They ask that people separate it into three categories – appliances, vegetative debris and construction debris.

Crews will not walk onto people’s private property to remove debris. People can place them at the edge of their property near the curb. Just make sure not to place these items by trees, poles or other structures.

Public works shares this word from FEMA:

“Within 30 days all the pickup and debris removal that we can actually muster and get taken care of is covered 100 percent by FEMA reimbursement,” relayed Public Works Director Greg Meredith.

Debris crews may be out as early as this weekend. For more information, click here.
