For those included, home/property debris should be placed at the curb, and items should be separated from tree debris. Residents not included in the special home/property debris collection should follow the City’s standard garbage collection guidelines.
Scam Awareness and Permitted Solicitors
As long-term recovery efforts begin, residents who suffered property damage should beware of scams and individuals looking to take advantage of this disaster. Residents should contact their insurance company directly and be cautious about giving information or business to companies that call or stop by their property unsolicited.
Various solicitors representing certain companies have been issued permits to solicit services in the impacted area. Non-profit peddlers/solicitors do not require a permit. A list of companies with permitted solicitors is available on the City’s website. Solicitors who are permitted will have a badge with the City's logo, their photo, and expiration date. Residents should ask to see that badge to ensure they are dealing with a permitted solicitor.
