Storm Update: City Relaxes Requirements for Removal of Tree Debris on Private Property Through Sept. 21

For Immediate Release: September 9, 2012

The City of Alexandria continues to recover from the storms that resulted in power outages and tree damage on Saturday, September 8.

Residents are asked to remain patient as storm-related cleanup work from public rights-of-way will be ongoing.

The City will temporarily relax some of its normal requirements for removal of tree debris on private property through September 21. Residents removing tree debris on their property should place tree limbs and debris at the curb, and if possible, cut them down to pieces that you, as a homeowner, can safely take to the curb for collection. Residents are encouraged to use care when removing large trees that have fallen on their property. If possible, items should be no larger than 2-3 inches in diameter; no longer than 4 feet in length, be bundled and weigh no more than 75 pounds per bundle. Residents are reminded to stay away from tree limbs that may be leaning on power lines and to steer clear of downed wires; to report these, call Dominion Virginia Power at 1-866-DOM-HELP (1.866.366.4357).

If a professional tree removal contractor is hired, they must remove all debris from the site.

City residents may also drop off debris at the Covanta Energy-from-Waste Facility (5301 Eisenhower Avenue, 703.370.7722) Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., or Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. Stumps are not accepted in curbside collection or at drop-off locations.

If you are discarding food as a result of an extended power outage, please remember that trash and recycling will be collected on a normal schedule during the week of September 10.

If you have questions about debris collection, please contact the Department of Transportation & Environmental Services at 703.746.4410, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
