DEARBORN – Dearborn residents affected by basement flooding following the unprecedented amount rainfall Monday may set damaged materials at the curb, even if it is not the neighborhood’s trash day.

There will be no special pickup fee assessed for flood-damaged material.

Carpet should be cut up and bundled in manageable pieces when set at the curb.

Trash and all loose debris should be bagged in heavy-duty trash bags.

Extra trash trucks from Republic Services will be dispatched each regular trash day. These additional pickups will take place until Aug. 22.

The DPW yard, 2915 Greenfield, will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 16 (a regularly scheduled day) and again on Aug. 23 for residents to drop off items for disposal. Residents must be able to lift and carry their own items at the DPW Yard.

Residents wanting information about cleaning up flooded basements and the process and requirements of filing a claim regarding flood damage can go to the city’s website: www.cityofdearborn.org.
