Residents who are unable to drop off debris:
Travis County is working on bringing on contractors to help with curbside pickup for unincorporated residents unable to bring their debris to the drop-off sites. The county does not have a set schedule yet but is asking residents to have debris cut up in 4- to 5-foot pieces and placed on the curb by Feb. 20.
Residents can click here to see if their road has already been reported for storm debris pickup.
If residents do not see their road on the list, they can email the Travis County Transportation and Natural Resources Department at [email protected] or call 512-854-9433 and leave a message.
