County Executive Leopold Announces Deployment of Dumpsters to Seven Shoreline Communities
Program will continue until storm debris is cleared
Annapolis, MD (September 23, 2011) - County Executive John R. Leopold announced that seven beach communities will receive dumpsters today to clear the shore of debris from Tropical Storm Lee.
“Several communities have requested our assistance in removing debris, including whole trees, from their shoreline,” County Executive Leopold said. “These deliveries will help neighborhoods organize cleanups for this weekend. We will continue to schedule deliveries as needed.”
"Today contractors will deliver dumpsters to Bayside Beach, Bay Ridge, Fair Haven, Pinehurst, Sillery Bay, Shore Acres and Venice on the Bay. They are tentatively scheduled to retrieve the dumpsters and deliver debris to the landfill on Monday."
"Anne Arundel County mobilized its resources during Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee to keep residents safe, providing rescue service to stranded motorists, repairing and clearing roads, providing clean drinking water and disseminating timely and accurate information. The dumpsters are provided through a $50,000 grant from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources."
Community associations for waterfront areas are still eligible to request dumpsters through the Office of Community and Constituent Services by calling 410-222-1795 or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual residents are not eligible to apply, so please contact your community association.
