Put storm debris at curbside for collection

January 21, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Starting Monday, Howard County highway crews will be collecting storm debris left at curbside along the 900 miles of county roads, and regular yard waste recycling collections for bundled materials will be extended through Feb. 5, County Executive James N. Robey announced yesterday.

Residents are asked to place broken branches of up to 4 inches in diameter and other storm-related debris at curbside for pickup by highway crews during a one-time sweep. County officials suggest patience, because it will take time for the trucks to get to every neighborhood.

County environmental recycling collections for yard waste, normally due to end this week, are being extended to help in the clean-up effort. Collections will occur on regularly scheduled days.

Howard countians may bring wood waste to the county landfill, 2350 Marriottsville Road, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday for free disposal.
