Residents of Douglas and Sarpy Counties affected by this month's flooding already have hauled hundreds of tons of flood-damaged debris to their landfills.
In the last week or so, 380 tons of flood debris has been brought to the Pheasant Point Landfill at 13505 N. 216th St. in Bennington, spokesperson Lisa Disbrow said Wednesday.
More flood debris also may have been collected at the curb, she said, noting that much more will be dropped off in the weeks ahead.
In Sarpy County, through Tuesday, nearly 433 tons of debris have been removed from flood-affected areas, officials said.
Household hazardous waste should be taken to Under the Sink at 4001 S. 120th St. That includes cleaning products, paint, paint remover, antifreeze, automotive batteries, automotive fluids, caulk, aerosol cans, adhesives, garden chemicals and pool chemicals.
