When will trash be picked up in Houston County?

HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) -- Sanitation workers are hoping to be able to start picking up trash this weekend.

Brittney Clayton, Assistant County Engineer at Houston County Commission, says that customers can put trash out on Saturday and that they will get to it if they can.

Delays could be caused by debris that is entangled in power lines. Until that is cleaned up by the power companies, there could be issues.

"We will pick up Hurricane Michael storm debris, free of charge, for our sanitation customers," Clayton said. "They need to have it out on the right-of-way by the end of the month and we will start picking it up as soon as we can."

Clayton did warn that pickup could take quite a while.

"It is a long process picking up the debris," Clayton said.
