Benton County debris pickup to begin on Monday, June 17

Pickup will begin in the hardest hit areas of Benton County with a schedule to be released at a later date.


Benton County has contracted with Looks Great Services to pick up vegetative debris and construction and demolition (C&D) debris on storm-affected roads. Pickup will begin on Monday, June 17 for county-maintained roads. We will begin debris removal in the hardest-hit areas of Benton County. There will be approximately three weeks between each pass of an area. A schedule will be released later on.


Please place your debris in the public right-of-way now. Until further notice, only debris placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection. If all debris is not picked up during the initial pass, please continue to push the remaining debris to the right-of-way for subsequent passes.


Please sort and place debris as follows:


VEGETATIVE DEBRIS - (root balls, whole trees, tree stumps, tree branches, tree trunks, and other leafy material)


CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS - (damaged components of buildings and structures such as lumber, wallboard, glass, metal, roofing materials, tile, furnishings, and fixtures)


Important Guidelines:

•         Do not block the roadway, utilities, or driveways

•         Keep debris at least four feet away from:

o        Mailboxes

o        Water meters

o        Fire hydrants

o        Above-ground utilities

o        Drainage ditches, swales, pipes, and inlets

o        Street signs

•         Do not place debris near low hanging powerlines

•         Do not place debris near street intersections to ensure safe sight distances.

•         Do not put debris on neighbor's property

•         Do not put mixed debris by the right-of-way. Vegetative and C&D debris must be kept separate.

•         Do not bag debris. Only loose debris will be collected.
