Disposing of sandbags once the waters have fully receded

When the water levels go down, it's time to dispose of the sandbags.

Flood victims whose properties are now completely clear of water are invited to place their soiled sandbags inside their properly lines, not on the streets or sidewalk to avoid obstructing traffic and pedestrians.

Bags must be arranged no more than 1.8 m (6 ft) deep and 0.9 m (3 ft) high. There is no restriction on how long the pile can be. The sandbags will be picked up in trucks. Construction and demolition waste must also be place on their properties lines. They must be kept separate from the sandbags and household garbage.
