Help is on the way for Norfolk residents with storm debris still littering the curb.
The City of Norfolk announced it will begin taking requests to pick up bulk waste Nov. 4, according to a city news release. The city will complete the request on residents’ regular trash day.
CrowderGulf contractors will make final sweeps across the city this weekend to collect large tree debris. Norfolk partnered with CrowderGulf contractors in October, collecting about 26,000 cubic yards of trees, branches and limbs. That’s about half the size of a football field, according to the news release.
Property owners will be responsible for discarding tree limbs larger than 6 inches in diameter and a quantity of debris larger than three cubic yards starting Nov. 9, according to the news release.
The city asks residents not to place debris near overhead wires, water meters and fire hydrants.
