Crews completed the curbside pickup in District 15 on Sunday, August 16, a little over a week after the effort began. Dismas Charities crews have been working 13 hour days to pick up all of the storm debris.
Items were collected on each alley and street. Should residents have additional items to discard, they are encouraged to utilize the three drop off sites that are open through next Sunday.
“Many thanks to the guys at Dismas Charities Portland Center for their dedication in getting this task complete;” said Councilwoman Marianne Butler. “It is only through their efforts that the overwhelming task was completed in nine days.”
District 15 was the hardest area hit with the rain and sewerage back-up. It is home to portions of the University of Louisville, Churchill Downs, the animal shelter, Iroquois Amphitheatre and Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital which is slowly reopening after devastating water damage.
