The City of Friendswood Guidlines For Storm Debris Removal
Debris clean-up continues following the tornado that went through Friendswood on October 31.
Beginning Monday (November 9), high-capacity, storm debris pick-up specialists will be in the area. To hasten the clean-up, all storm-related debris must be brought to the curb. When piling debris curbside, keep it away from fire hydrants, mailboxes, and sign posts.
Debris must be separated into three piles:
- vegetative waste (trees, tree trunks, limbs, shrubs, leaves, and other green waste),
- construction and demolition (sheet rock, shingles, siding, carpet, furniture, and other items from inside homes), and
- bagged household garbage.
Debris left on utility easements or behind homes will not be picked up. Also, appliances and household hazardous materials will not be picked up.
A final pass for storm-related debris will begin at 7 a.m. on November 16. All remaining debris must be curbside. Debris brought to the curbside after the final pass must meet all normal guidelines for heavy trash and green waste pickup.
Residents are reminded to use caution when driving through neighborhoods with storm debris, as piles may limit visibility at intersections or hide pedestrian traffic.
If you have questions, please call the City of Friendswood Office of Emergency Management at 281-996-3335.
