Hauling and Disposing of Flood Debris

The demands for waste removal were overwhelming immediately after the flood.

Piles of soaked carpets, furniture, and other belongings were piled in front of houses everywhere.

Water heaters, furnaces, doors, and more were ripped out of the lower levels and basements of homes.

Mold quickly became public enemy number one and getting it out of living spaces was a priority.

Roll-off containers placed in neighborhoods were supposed to be off limits for contractor use.

Items like this 1,000-pound tree stump suggests that this prohibition went largely unheeded.
