Storm Recovery Progress

Wednesday September 24, 2008

 
LG&E holds a press conference on their storm cleanup progress.

LG&E reports that virtually all power has been restored following one of the most damaging windstorms in Louisville history, but the massive cleanup continues.

Storm Debris Disposal
Tens of thousands of citizens have taken advantage of the regional sites designated for dropping off storm debris. These seven locations will be open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Sunday:

· Hubbards Lane Public Works Facility, 595 Hubbards Lane

· Meriwether Public Works Facility, 600 Meriwether Ave.

· Shawnee Park, 4501 W. Broadway (back side of driving loop)

· Highview Park, 7201 Outer Loop (use Briscoe Lane entrance)

· Vettiner Park, 5550 Charlie Vettiner Park Road (from Mary Dell Lane, turn right)

· Cox Park, 3730 River Road (boat ramp parking lot)

· Sun Valley Park, 6616 Ashby Lane (near the soccer fields)

Homeowners with debris such as downed trees, limbs, shingles and siding can drop off the debris free of charge. People should separate yard waste from building materials because they require different disposal methods. The service does not apply to businesses.

Regular yard waste collection rules apply whether you are in the Urban Services District or whether you have a private garbage collection service.

Each hauler – urban and suburban – has specific rules for regular yard waste collection but generally speaking debris must be less than 3 inches in diameter and no more than 3 feet long to be collected. For more information, contact your hauler directly or call MetroCall 311.

Starting next Monday, Sept. 29, Public Works crews will bring in heavy equipment to begin the process of loading large limbs and trees that fell in roadways or along the right of ways. The process of clearing all of Louisville’s roadsides could take two months.

Fire officials remind citizens: Do not burn storm debris. It’s against the law, creates fire hazards and requires unnecessary fire runs when firefighters are needed elsewhere.
