KIMBERLY, AL (WBRC) -

Kimberly city officials announced that the deadline to have storm debris removed by the city's contractors will be May 30.

Property owners will be responsible for debris removal after this date. Property owners should only place loose debris in the public right away.

The city asks residents to follow these guidelines to have debris picked up:

1. Do not place debris on top of utilities, for example: cable, phone, electrical, storm drain boxes or fire hydrants.

2. Please do not place debris in front of or around your mailbox.

3. Please do not place debris in front of or around your driveway, as emergency vehicles may need to enter the area.

4. Please drive with extreme caution in areas with large debris piles.

5. Please do not block or dump any debris into the storm drains or ditches. This will cause a flood hazard.

6. Please aid contractors by sweeping excess and loose debris from the street in front of your house.

7. Please separate debris into the following groups:

         - Vegetative debris: whole trees, stumps, branches, trunks and all other leafy materials

         - Construction and demolition debris: damaged building and structures such as lumber and wood, wall board, glass, metal, roofing materials, tile, furnishings, and fixtures

         - Household hazardous waste: materials that are ignitable, reactive, toxic or corrosive such as paints, cleaners, pesticides, etc.

         - White goods: refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, heat pumps, ovens, ranges, washing machines/dryers and water heaters

         - Roof shingles or tires: resulting from the April 28, 2014 Storm may be eligible for removal and separated at the curb
