T.F.R Enterprises Inc. briefed the Larimer County Solid Waste department today on flood debris removal scheduling. There are many variables to the debris pick up schedule such as weather, access, and debris amounts that will influence the pickup schedule. There will be a 1st, 2nd and FINAL pass in most areas. Please watch the Larimer County Flood web site for continually updated information. http://larimer.org/flooding2013/ The schedule for debris pickup will be modified as needed. This is a very fluid situation with many unpredictable changes to the schedule.
 
Important guidelines for debris removal:
 
 
- Woody and vegetative debris such as limbs and shrubbery
- Silt and mud residue that originates from within your private structures
- Construction & demolition debris including: household items such as furniture, carpet, drywall, lumber,
   roofing material, etc.
- Metals and large household appliances
 
·         The moving and sorting of debris will take some time for property owners to accomplish. Volunteer help may be available by calling 211. T.F.R Enterprises will be driving these road right-of-ways scanning and mapping the debris piles. Seeing the amounts of debris in areas will help T.F.R Enterprises modify the schedules more accurately.
 
·         Materials that you want to keep should be removed from the right-of-way or marked with orange paint or ribbon or it will be removed.
 
 Please refer to the debris removal maps online at http://larimer.org/flooding2013/ if you want to see where county road right-of ways are, they are shown in bold green. 
 
Check with your private commercial trash hauler to find out when regular Household garbage collection will resume to its normal schedule. Again, please check the Larimer County Web site http://larimer.org/flooding2013/  for specific information and updates on the debris removal process.
