Instructions to Residents Living Inside the Designated Collection Area: Debris should be cut into manageable lengths of no more than 8 feet and piled between the street and sidewalk but not in traffic lanes. Public Works crews will focus initially on removing brush and will follow later with removal of larger logs. The crews will focus on rapid removal of the major debris and will not be raking or removing small sticks/twigs/leaves so homeowners may need to rake the areas where debris was piled after removal.
Residents Living Outside the Designated Collection Area: Any resident of the City of Grandville may bring NATURAL storm debris ONLY to the Grandville Department of Public Works facility at 4095 White Street. Enter at the rear gate from Oakes Street which will be open 24 hours a day for at least the next 7 days. Also, be aware that some home owner’s insurance policies may have provisions applicable to storm cleanup.
Residents are reminded to be mindful of downed lines and storm-impacted trees that may be leaning or have weakened or dangling branches.
Further information, as it becomes available, will be posted on the City’s website www.cityofgrandville.com.
