City hall has been inundated with calls from residents and businesses asking about the cleanup process, she said.

“A lot of small businesses were damaged and are asking if the city will pick up their debris. Unfortunately, they aren't eligible for the service,” Usry said.

Contractors will make at least two sweeps through residential neighborhoods in an effort to collect as much debris as possible, she said. Crews will have people with flags to direct traffic around the workers as they progress through neighborhoods, but motorists are asked to drive with caution.

Construction debris should be separated from vegetative debris, Usry said. The two types of debris will be collected separately.

Construction and demolition debris includes building materials such as lumber, roof shingles, wooden fences, glass and metal products as well as appliances and furniture.

Only loose debris will be collected. Bagged debris should be put in trash carts, officials said.
