Crews will finish picking up Hurricane Harvey debris from League City homes by Friday, city officials said.

The city on Monday announced the end of its debris removal contract with CrowderGulf. 

"Removal efforts have reached the point that a majority of the storm debris has been removed throughout the city," the city said. "New construction materials are being mixed into the few remaining concentrations of storm debris that remain."

FEMA won't reimburse the city for removal of new construction materials, the city said.

Remaining storm debris must be pushed up to the rights of way to be picked up.

Cleanup after Harvey, which made landfall just more than two months ago, went "quicker and smoother" than anticipated, the city said.
