Disaster Debris Cleanup and Management

A Category 4 Hurricane with winds up to 155 mph would create an estimated 12 million tons of debris. Disasters such as this create problems, as they are usually costly to clean up and require a large amount of space in area landfills for debris.

The Houston-Galveston Area Council recognizes the need for communities to perform efficient and timely cleanup of debris generated by natural disasters and/or major storm events.
