Flood debris cleanup to begin in Fayette County on Friday morning

FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Teams arrived on Thursday to assist the Fayette County Office of Emergency Management with debris cleanup from the floods that took place on Sunday in Minden, Oak Hill and Fayetteville.

The team will be made up of members of the National Guard, American Baptist Men, and Team Rubicon, and they will be coming by on Friday morning to pick up debris.

Fayette County Office of Emergency Management Director Kevin Walker says debris must be left on the curb off of private property and out of the roads.

“Everything needs to be on the curb to where it is easily accessible by a skid-steer loader,” Walker said. “They need to be able to scoop it up, put it in the back of the dump trucks to be able to take to the temporary dumpsite so we can properly dispose of it at the landfills.”

An exact time will be released closer to Friday morning and the teams will also be able to help you clean the mud out some of your flooded rooms.
