Orange County, the City of Orange, City of Vidor, City West Orange, City of Pinehurst, City of Bridge City, Rose City, and Pine Forest officials are advising as citizens begin to clean up their properties please be aware of how debris should be placed for pick up.

Any flood-related materials that citizens may want to be removed from the area must be separated into four distinct categories. FEMA requirements for separation of debris and damaged material are as follows:

  • C&D Piles — construction and demolition materials
  • Green — Waste Piles- tree limbs, branches and cuttings
  • White Goods — refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, freezers, etc.
  • Hazardous Waste — paints, household chemicals, etc.

Place the debris to the side of the road in a manner that is not blocking the roadway in any way. The debris should be placed in the proper piles and also should be accessible for pick up with a grappling truck.

Officials request patience as it may take several days for officials to finalize debris removal contracts and for the task of actual pick up to begin
