County to pick up storm debris from curbside for four weeks
By

The high winds associated with Hurricane Irma created a fair amount of “green waste”, such as limbs, branches, leaves, and even some whole trees.
The City of Thomson learned on Thursday, Sept. 14 that all Georgia City and County Governments will likely qualify for some Federal reimbursement for costs associated with storm or “green waste” cleanup.
The City of Thomson and McDuffie County work crews have been busy clearing public right of ways all week and now are focused on cleanup.
For the next four weeks, ending Friday, Oct. 13, residents of Thomson, Dearing, and McDuffie County are encouraged to bring storm debris to the curbside or road side for pickup by City and County work crews.
Residents are reminded that when placing debris by the curb or roadside, to please pile neatly and whenever possible, do not place the piles under power lines. This impedes work and can create safety issues for the workers as they operate equipment.
Again, the City and County want to complete as much of this work as possible by Friday, Oct. 13. After that date, the City’s Solid Waste Department will resume picking up normal yard waste only such as grass clippings, leaves, and small limbs. County residents should take normal yard waste to the landfill at current rates.
If questions, call (706) 595-1781.
