(CNS): Department of Environment and Health trucks were back on the road Tuesday morning as garbage collection services resumed, but delays are expected as services were disrupted Monday due to Hurricane Ian. A landfill in Georgetown has also been reopened to accept scrap metal, derelict vehicles and other bulk waste. Due to the low amount of post-hurricane debris, the temporary site will not be activated and residents will be able to use his 24-hour drop-off site at the dump to pick up small amounts of yard debris.

DEH Director Richard Sims complemented residents for their important contribution to minimizing the amount of debris from their property in preparation for the passage of Hurricane Ian.

“The impact of Hurricane Ian on debris was very minor,” he said. “We would like to thank the public for the positive impact our preparations had on post-hurricane debris volumes. We got a lot of traffic because we adhered to the guidelines provided for,” he said.

We also apologize for any inconvenience caused by the garbage collection delay. For more information, please contact DEH at 949-6696 or email dehcustomerservice@gov.ky. Visit DEH’s website www.deh.gov.ky or their Facebook and messenger pages.
