Tornado Debris Clean-up

The Wilson County debris removal contractors will soon begin debris removal on Wilson County maintained roads in response to the tornado of March 3, 2020.

The cities of Lebanon and Mt. Juliet are handling debris removal as well. For those who live within the city limits of Lebanon or Mt. Juliet, contact Lebanon City Hall or Mt. Juliet City Hall for more information regarding clean-up.

The Wilson County contractors are currently prioritizing debris removal based on the tornado path only. Residents of impacted areas are asked to place any tornado-generated debris on the public right-of-way. The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement.

Residents are urged to separate the debris as follows:

  • VEGETATIVE DEBRIS (whole trees, tree stumps, tree branches, tree trunks and other leafy material)
  • CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS (building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, mattresses, plumbing)
  • WHITE GOODS (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, heat pumps, ovens, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers and water heaters)
  • HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE (materials that are ignitable, reactive, toxic or corrosive such as paints, cleaners, pesticides, etc.)
  • ELECTRONICS (TVs, computers, stereos, printers, faxes)

Normal household trash or “spring cleaning” waste will not be collected.

Only loose debris will be collected, BAGGED DEBRIS SHOULD NOT be placed on the public right-of-way. Do not place debris near a water meter vault, fire hydrant or any other above-ground utility. Only debris placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection until further notice.

If you live on a county road and have tornado-generated debris, please move it to the right-of-way as soon as possible.

The Wilson County contractors will make multiple passes through the impacted areas. For more information, please call Thompson Consulting at (305)310-2373.
