Flood debris removal options for Minot residents in 2012
Posted on 5/9/2012
The City of Minot has earned an extension on a FEMA-approved contract to continue flood debris removal for residents. City leaders are planning to have two more rounds of debris pickup, one after Memorial Day (May 28) and then a final pick up the week of July 2nd.
Residents are reminded that in order for debris to be properly removed they should place it within 10 feet of the street or between the street and the sidewalk. Debris should be separated by metal, wood, etc. if possible. White goods (household appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners and stoves) and any household hazardous waste should be separated from other flood debris.
Only debris from gutting a residential flood-damaged property may be placed on the curb. Dan Jonasson, Minot public works director, says if there is any new construction waste on the pile FEMA will not allow this debris to be picked up under the contract. This debris removal is not for trees, construction debris or any other non-flood debris. Business or commercial property are not eligible and must make arrangements to have their debris hauled out or obtain roll-off containers.
