Crews expect to complete the first pass of debris removal in Dickinson by Sunday, city officials said.

Post-Hurricane Harvey debris removal has “progressed much better than originally estimated,” said Sgt. Tim Cromie, spokesman of the Dickinson Police Department. To date, crews have collected 135,875 cubic yards of debris in the city, Cromie said.

A second collection will begin Monday, Cromie said. CrowderGulf Disaster Recovery & Debris Management and the Texas Department of Transportation have a combined 20 trucks operating in Dickinson, Cromie said.

Homeowners must ensure all debris is placed within 10 feet of the edge of the road for easy removal, Cromie said. Other vehicles or objects that obstruct the debris pile should also be moved, he said.

After the second round of debris collection, homeowners are responsible for their debris removal, Cromie said.

People who need help with interior debris removal or debris placement near the curb can contact Team Rubicon Disaster Response at 817-771-2831.
