DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

If you’re a Dougherty County resident with storm debris still in your yard, you may want to pick it up this weekend.

County residents are asked to have their storm debris in front of their homes by Monday, May 1, 2017.

Next week, pickup crews will do one final sweep of storm damaged areas. The contract between the county and Ceres, the debris removal company, is coming up on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, and crews want to pick up as much debris as they can.

“This can’t go on forever. There has to be an ending date to it and that’s where we’re at. Our contract date runs out on May 10th and we are looking to do as much as we can by that date.

“This weekend, cleanup volunteers are expected to be in the heavy damaged areas.

Within the county, crews have picked up more than 550,000 cubic yards of storm debris.
