Storm aftermath

High volumes of storm-generated debris must be dealt with so that vehicle traffic and solid waste collection can return to normal.

Temporary debris management sites helped solid waste crews in Broward County, Fla., dispatch debris after Hurricanes Wilma and Katrina.

Stumps and branches from storm-ravaged trees need to be disposed of; many public works departments engage outside contractors to help with the effort after a severe event.
