11-15-21 Last pass of debris removal begins November 29

For Immediate Release: November 15, 2021


Press Release: Debris Removal process updates


This week marks the 90-day post-flood milestone. As that date nears, the second pass of residential debris removal is nearing completion.


After Friday, November 12 all right-of-way debris removal operations will cease, until November 29.


This break in operations will allow time for residents to prepare for one final storm debris removal pass, and to allow crews to spend time with their families for Thanksgiving.


The final debris removal pass will begin Monday, November 29, and is anticipated to take about a week. Residents should plan to have all debris pre-sorted and next to the road for pick up before November 29 to ensure it will be picked up in the last pass.


As of the date of this release over 35,000 cubic yards of debris (or about 11 Olympic-size swimming pools) have been removed from Haywood County properties.
