Collin County storm cleanup update from Chris Hill

From Collin County Commissioner Chris Hill
Friends,
I want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has been actively assisting in the recovery efforts. We opened the Collin County Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) in Farmersville TX yesterday, and the response has been tremendous. More than 140 volunteers registered at the resource center, and I’m aware of dozens more who have been helping families directly. Additionally, several construction companies volunteered personnel and heavy equipment to assist in the debris cleanup yesterday and today, which will continue throughout the weekend and next week. Our community has truly come together in a significant way to help those in need. As a direct result of the generosity of our community, we’ve been able to actively assist dozens of families affected by the storms.
Sincerely,

Collin County to Pay Landfill Disposal Fees for Storm Debris

Collin County residents may bring debris from the December 26 storm to the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) landfill near Melissa free of charge, according to the schedule below. A current drivers license or utility bill is required to prove residency, and staff will be on hand to verify residency and that debris is storm-related. Residents will need to be prepared to unload the debris on their own.

Residents driving pick-ups with trailers will be allowed in at no charge. However, the NTMWD has determined that large flatbed trucks, box trucks, roll-off trucks, dump trucks and construction vehicles will not qualify for free dropoff, and will be required to pay the normal rate for disposal.

NTMWD Storm Recovery Free Hours
Saturday, January 2: 8am – 3pm
Monday, January 4 – Friday, January 8: 7am – 5pm
Saturday, January 9: 7am – 3pm *
Saturday, January 16: 7am – 3pm *

* Help will be available at the landfill on these days to unload debris

Collin County cleanup under way

From County Judge Keith Self:

Collin County will foot the bill for county residents hauling storm-related debris to the North Texas Municipal Water District landfill in Melissa.

County residents may bring debris from the Dec. 26 storm-related debris only to the Melissa landfill free of charge on the following days:

Thursday Dec. 31 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
Friday Jan. 1 Landfill is Closed
Saturday Jan. 2 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
Monday-Friday Jan. 4-8 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday* Jan. 9 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
Saturday* Jan. 16 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
* Help will be available at the landfill to unload debris

Earlier today, the county announced that it had arranged for two free debris drop-off days at the landfill on consecutive Saturdays — Jan. 9 and 16. However, rather than make residents wait another week to clean up debris from last week’s storm, county officials made arrangements with the NTMWD to allow residents additional times to haul the refuse to the landfill over the coming week.

The county’s Public Works Department will have a representative at the landfill to verify residents and storm-related debris. A current drivers license or utility bill is required to prove residency. Except for Jan. 9 and 16’s Saturday drop-off days, residents will need to unload the debris on their own.

Residents driving pick-ups with trailers will be allowed in at no charge. However, the NTMWD has informed us that large flatbed trucks, box trucks, roll-off trucks, dump trucks and construction vehicles will be charged the normal rate for disposal.
