Jomar Boddie was dropping off debris from a flooded basement Thursday morning.
"She tried to salvage some of the stuff, but I told her, I was like, 'Well, if it's got water on it, it's no good,' so we're just doing a little bit at a time," Boddie said.
"This is for the residents of Jefferson County, to help relieve some of that burden and get rid of material very quickly because it could cause a health hazard," explained Keith Hackett of Metro Public Works.
