the cleanup continues wtva's nicole dantzler tells us what the city is now asking residents to do... looks great services, the debris removal company for the city, says the debris removal has been successful so far and they could be finished by this weekend. since last tuesday, the supervisor noah frederick says they have removed over one million pounds of debris from the city and will continue to pick up more. right at the intersection of 12th street north and 3rd avenue, the company picked up debris that residents put out on the road. the company reminds residents to put the debris out on the road because they cannot go on private property. frederick says they risk damaging property or injuring someone if the debris is not where they can easily access it. there are still trees down and structures that need to be taken down that he says they can't do themselves "we can't get every road in the city every single day, that's where i come in. i'm driving the roads every day and if there's new stuff that's put out after we pick up we're marking it on a map and picking it all up." this debris removal company works disasters all over the country and just returned from puerto rico to help out with their recovery.
