Roanoke City crews still working to clean-up brush from 2 weeks ago

Posted: Updated:

it's been just over two weeks since severe weather hit our area and the damage did produce quite a bit of brush.

Roanoke City crews have been working overtime to get the brush removed and off the streets.

So far, city leaders say they've removed about 700 tons of brush.

They say it's been a challenge, but still doesn't compare to the derecho we had last year, where crews removed more than 2,800 tons.

We're told the best thing the community can do is help.

"Most of what we do hinges on the public," Solid Waste Management Division Maintained Supervisor, Billy Basham says. "If you can get it out to the street, we can clean it up."

Just a reminder, you can take brush free of charge to the Tinker Creek Transfer Station.

Crews are still working in the southwest part of the city, but expect to have everything cleaned up by Saturday.
