Storm Debris Separation
It is very important that residents separate types of storm debris and place the materials at the curb. Items should be sorted into the following different piles:
  • Vegetative items like tree limbs, stumps and leafy matter
  • Construction and demolition items like metal roofing,
  • lumber and wood, tile, glass and gypsum board
  • Household hazardous wastes like cleaning products,
  • paints, stains and solvents
  • Electronic waste like computers and TVs
  • White goods like stoves, heat pumps, refrigerators and
  • water heaters
  • Soil, mud and sand
  • Vehicles and vessels
If debris is not separated, it will hinder clearing operations and delay pickup.
 
Power Outages
Citizens can call Progress Energy at 1-800-452-2777 for information about power restoration.
 
The Fayetteville Police Department is currently working on establishing an ID card identification system for residents of the devastated areas and for the identification of contractors entering the areas. The police department anticipates to establish this system later today. Citizens and contractors will be directed to the Police Command Posts in either the Yadkin Road or Reilly Road corridor.
