Crews help San Marcos residents pick up remaining flood debris

Cox Rd. in Blanco

SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Additional help is on the way for San Marcos residents who still have flood debris piled around them.

Jan. 26 and 27 pickup crews will be in San Marcos to sort through and pick up the remaining trash and debris from the floods.

In a press release, the city of San Marcos wanted to remind residents to prepare for the crews by piling debris on their curb. Materials for building like sheetrock, wood and insulation should be placed on the curb for the crews to pickup.

All hazardous waste should be separated from other trash and placed in its own pile at the curb. Hazardous waste can be dropped off at the San Marcos City Hall at 630 E Hopkins on Tuesday and Fridays from noon to 3:30 p.m. Waste that is considered to be hazardous includes: drain cleaners, degreasers, paints, fluorescent lights, cell phones, batteries, weed killers, and sharps. Tires, medical waste, compressed gas, pharmaceuticals, cylinders, computers, and TV’s are not accepted by the facility.

Any left over trash, recycling, and green waste should be placed in appropriate bins and will be picked up on the regularly scheduled trash and recycling collection days. However anyone with excess brush needing to be disposed of can attend the brush drop-off the second Saturday of each month located at 750 River Road in San Marcos. The next brush drop-off will be Saturday, Feb. 13.

Other separate piles should include large appliances, which need to be taped together and closed.
