County crews shifted their focus from emergency response to full scale cleanup activities Tuesday. Crews focused their initial efforts on county roads closest to Wetumpka such as Old Georgia Plank Rd and Old Tallassee Hwy and are working towards the end of the storm’s path just northeast of Eclectic.
The 18.2 mile EF2 tornado track is filled with downed trees as well as residential and commercial debris from structures located along the affected county roads and structures located inside the city limits of Wetumpka.
County residents are reminded that debris on the county right-of-ways will be picked up by county forces. Debris located on private property can either be disposed of at the next Countywide cleanup on Saturday Feb 9th (details of eligible items and locations are listed on the county’s website at http://www.elmoreco.org or can be obtained by calling 334-567-1162 during normal operations hours) or by coordinating with Advanced Disposal (call 334-513-1541) to dispose such materials at their Tallassee landfill facilities. Residents and contractors should not place construction and demolition materials on the county right-of-ways.
