Public Works employees work to help clear post-flood waste and bulk refuse
Public Works has been working 24/7 to remove bulk waste caused by the floods.
Public Works Streets and Alleys Superintendent Derek Dominick explained how the department has been working around the clock since July 2 to help remove bulk waste and refuse damaged by the Floods.
“As of July 8, we have had more than 1900 tons of garbage that was picked up,” Dominick said as his crews worked continuously to relieve the pressure on homeowners.
“A normal week, we take 750 tons so we are more than two and one-half times the normal amount.”
The cleanup effort has been supplemented with trucks from Cook County and several contracted by the Town to assist in the removal of the bulk waste from the flooding.
