Update on Debris Removal

web posted February 28, 2014

COUNTY Edgefield County is currently still working on trying to have debris removed from county roads, but has not been very efficient due to federal government red tape. County Administrator Lynn Strom and EMA Director Mike Casey met with FEMA officials on Wednesday for the initial damage assessment.  The information that they gathered will be used to determine the extent of federal assistance the County may receive to help cover debris removal and/or other costs associated with the storm.

Mrs. Strom said, "While waiting on the declaration from the federal government, Edgefield County EMA has contacted our FEMA approved debris removal contractor to give us a quote for debris removal services on County roads. The contractor is assessing the County today in order to give us this quote."

It is unknown how long it will take for the federal government to approve disaster relief so the approved contractor can get to work removing debris from county roads right of ways. Those living in residential areas (subdivisions) that are located on county roads can place yard debris near the roadway for removal.

At this time residents are being asked, if possible, to take debris to the nearest recycling center. You should contact your insurance agent to see if you have coverage to have debris from your property removed and disposed.

Those living on state roads have seen contractors working for SCDOT begin the process of removing debris from the state roads right of way.

Edgefield Daily will have more information as it becomes available.
