Waste Management allows citizens to drop off debris
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville may look a little cleaner.
Many Jefferson County residents were left with debris from last Saturday's storms. Waste Management allowed people to drop off that debris for 15 dollars a load Saturday. Long lines of trucks carried tree limbs and branches to the drop-off. Those we spoke to say the drop-off site solved a big problem in their neighborhoods.
"You know, most of our neighbors pitched in and we all helped each other clean up our own yards and remove trees from the street that night so actually by Monday morning most of the storm debris was cleaned up, but it has been sitting on our front lawn for about four or five days," says Michael Clevenger.
The Outer Loop Recycling and Disposal facility was only open to individual homeowners. Residents of the Urban Services District will have their storm debris hauled away by the company as part of its routine service.
