Forks To Take Hurricane Sandy Debris

Residents urged to drop off Hurricane Sandy debris at Forks public works building Saturday.

Got debris?

Well you can get rid of all of you tree limbs, leaves and other damage from Hurricane Sandy at the Forks Township public works building on Saturday.

At Thursday night's Board of Supervisors worksession, township officials said the public works garage would be open between from 6:30 a.m. to 4 or 5 p.m. Saturday for people to ditch their debris.

The public works building is located on 1051 Frost Hollow Road.

Public Works Director Mark Roberts said the garage will be open to allow residents to dump debris such as fallen trees and other litter caused by Hurricane Sandy.

"The yard is getting pretty tight already. It's a concern," Roberts said. "Everyone needs to be realistic to it. But there's been a constant flow of people."

Township Manager John Cornell said in 2007, the public works department  picked up debris at curbside.

"It was quite lengthy and took too much time, over the course of a month," Cornell said. "We discussed it and don't want to do the same concept."

While Cornell said the township was exploring other options, he felt it was best for residents to bring their debris to the public works building.

"We're doing leaf pickup now and it's very common, into November, to get snowfalls."
