ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County leaders reminded residents to get their storm debris to the curb before next month's deadline, which is quickly approaching.

Public Works staff urged folks to only place January storm two-related debris in the proper area.

Debris should be separated into four categories: normal household trash, vegetative debris, construction and demolition debris and appliances and white goods. 

As of yesterday, the County Public Works Department collected nearly 540,000 cubic tons of storm debris. 

"It's one small phase is where we're at. It will be good feeling when we get things cleaned up to the standard that we want it but we know that's still going to be an ongoing process for awhile to come just getting the debris removed," said Larry Cook, Dougherty County Public Works Director. 

Dougherty County will be making a final pass of picking up storm debris on May 1st.
