LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County residents are urged to bring storm debris to the landfill. There is no confirmed plan at this time to pick up storm debris curbside. 

There is no tipping fee for bringing storm debris to the landfill. It's located off Hwy 32 east just outside Leesburg. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday. 

Right now, the county does not have a collection point established for structural debris.

"If they will move all of their debris next to the roadway and stay clear of the roadway of course, then we will have collectors that will come through later on.  We are trying to get a specific date of collection, but there will be collection crews coming around to collect the debris.," said Deputy EMA Director Wesley Wells.

Wells said the Lee County Emergency Operations Center is still open and fully operational. 

If you need assistance, you can call the EOC center at (229) 759-6051 or (229) 759-6052.
