FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Fort Collins, CO – Larimer County crews have been cleaning up the last of the debris piles from county roadways since the right-of-way debris program ended on May 10th. The County appreciates the efforts of residents in flood damaged communities who got their debris to the county right-of-way before the end of the program May 10, 2014.
In some flood impacted areas the transition has gone from ‘debris pick up site’ to ‘illegal dump site’ for trash and household items. This is a great public health concern now that the weather has warmed causing food decay which is a public health and safety problem, attracting bears and other wildlife to these illegal dump sites.
