“What do I do with flood debris?” is a question often heard these days in Larimer County and the County is working towards implementing a flood debris pickup program as soon as possible. The County is in the process of hiring a contractor to remove flood debris. The County’s program will tell residents where they can place debris. Guidelines will be spelled out once the program is announced.
 
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regulations require Larimer County to adhere to specific requirements for cleanup and guidelines and procedures must be followed to maintain County eligibility for cost reimbursement. Once the program is announced and residents begin leaving it in the assigned location, the debris will be monitored by the contractor to make sure it is eligible debris covered by the Federal FEMA program. 
 
  • Residents are asked to wait until the pickup schedule is determined and announced.  Please do not place any trash on roadways as it could interfere with traffic safety, attract scavengers, and if snow falls, may be pushed to the side by snowplows.
 
  • Guidelines will be posted on how the debris needs to be placed and segregated. Material segregation will be necessary, and instructions for segregation will be announced.  
 
  • Hazardous waste should not be left for any pick-up. Please call the Larimer County landfill at 970-498-5771 to determine how to dispose of hazardous waste.
 
When the debris contractor is hired Larimer County will be notifying areas when the contractor will be in their area. This schedule will be dependent on when the roads can be reopened. Questions concerning debris cleanup can be directed to Gary Darling at (970) 980-2671 or Stephen Gillette at (970) 498-5762.
