As the debris mission continues throughout Orange County citizens are reminded that vegetative debris (tree branches, leaves, logs and plants) should be separated from construction and demolition debris or it will not be picked up. If the debris contractors have made a pass and not been able to pick up the entire pile, the remaining debris should be pushed back to the road for another pick up. The debris contractors are only allowed to get what they can reach from the road with their equipment, they are not allowed to go on private property. The debris should be placed to the side of the road in a manner that is NOT blocking the roadway in any way.

White goods (Refrigerators, washer/dryers, air conditioners, etc) may be brought to the Citizen Collection Station, 11265 FM 1442, Orange Tx 77632, but must have the Freon removed before they can take them. Commissioners Court has waived permit fees and extended the hours of the Citizen Collection Station from 7 am – 6 pm for seven days of week.
