The City of Edinburg is beginning its recovery process in the wake of Hurricane Hanna. We will be collecting storm debris from within the City of Edinburg starting Monday,  August 3rd. City crews, in conjunction with our city contractor,  will initiate collection in the City’s Brush Area 1. All residents are urged to take this weekend to finalize all debris and cleanup efforts and place all storm debris for collection. 

We urge our residents to follow debris placement guidelines to assist us in providing an efficient collection of storm debris.

Residents are asked to place any storm-generated debris on the public right-of-way. The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole, or easement. Keep vegetative debris (woody debris such as limbs and shrubbery) separated from construction and demolition debris, as they will be collected separately. Bagged debris should not be placed on the public right-of-way, only loose debris will be collected. Any household hazardous waste, roof shingles, or tires resulting from Hurricane Hanna, may be eligible for removal and should be separated at the curb.

Do not place near water meter vault, fire hydrant, or any other above-ground utility. Only debris placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection until further notice. If all debris is not picked up during the initial pass, please continue to push remaining debris to the right-of-way for collection on subsequent passes. Household garbage collection will continue on its normal collection schedule. 

Please check the City of Edinburg Web site at https://cityofedinburg.com/ or City of Edinburg Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts for additional information and updates on the debris removal process.

For more information, please call the City of Edinburg’s Help Line at 956.259.HELP.
