EMERALD MOUNTAIN STORM DEBRIS COLLECTION
Working with our County Commission representatives, Troy Stubbs and Mack Daugherty, a plan to pick up woody/vegetative storm debris not currently on the county right-of-way in Emerald Mountain at no cost to homeowners has been formulated. This is a goodwill effort on the part of Elmore County in consideration of the extent of damage to our neighborhood on May 3rd and 4th. County crews will begin the collection of debris beginning Monday, May 17th, based on the following guidelines:
 
1:    Homeowners must place woody/ vegetative debris, (no fence material)  cut into a manageable size (6' to 8')  for county equipment, by the curb or shoulder no later than Sunday, May 16th.  Crews will begin collecting on Monday, May 17th, and will make ONLY ONE PASS through Emerald Mountain.  If your debris is not by the curb or shoulder when they pass through, they will not go back and retrieve the debris.
 
2.    Woody/ vegetative debris placed by the curb or shoulder after pickup on Monday, May 17th, must be removed by the homeowner at homeowner expense.
 
3.    Non-vegetative debris will not be picked up by the county. Any non-vegetative debris placed on by the curb or on the shoulder or co-mingled with vegetative debris will be the responsibility of the homeowner to remove at the homeowner’s  expense.
 
4.    If your insurance company is covering the cost of tree removal or if you have engaged with a contractor, your contractor should haul away the debris.  Contractors are not allowed to place debris by the curb or shoulder for pick up.  
 
Significant damage occurred throughout Elmore County, and we appreciate the willingness of our county commission to assist Emerald Mountain residents through this difficult time. Residents who have items not eligible for pickup can also utilize the City County Collection facility in Wetumpka. More info on hours and items accepted can be found at www.elmoreco.org/environmental . (See below)
 

ELMORE COUNTY REFUSE COLLECTION
The Elmore County Commission, in partnership with the City of Wetumpka, has opened a centrally located collection facility. The collection facility replaces the previous once a month countywide cleanup day. 
 
The facility located on Red Eagle Drive in Wetumpka, (located adjacent to the Wetumpka Street Department at 110 Red Eagle Drive, Wetumpka, AL 36092) has limited operations during the week. An attendant will now be present at the facility to ensure disposal of items are properly executed.
 
New operating days and times:
Tuesdays 7am to 3pm
Thursdays 7am to 3pm
Saturdays 7am to 12pm
 
No items shall be disposed of at or around the facility during non-operational hours. Violators will be prosecuted to the maximum extent. The attendant is also not in place to assist with loading and/ or unloading items. 
 
With the great interest in the County/ City Collection Facility, we also would like to clarify rules for use of the collection facility. These rules are in place in order for residents (who are currently paying residential curbside customers) to retain access to this free service. Individuals not adhering to these rules will be subject to prosecution:
 
All citizens utilizing the facility should practice CDC recommended practices related to COVID-19 or may be asked to exit the facility;
The collection facility is not intended for contractors as the facility is designed for residents to dispose of items larger in size or quantity than their normal residential containers can accommodate. All demolition materials and woody debris must not be longer than four feet long;
The site is not to be used for household garbage. Anyone disposing of household garbage at this facility will be prosecuted for illegal dumping;
Items that will not be accepted include appliances, batteries, paints or thinners, oils and gases;
Any items that are not considered trash (e.g. clothing, unwanted/ gently used items, and gently used furniture) should be donated to a local donation center. Local donation centers in this area are the Elmore County Humane Shelter Thrift Store, the Adullam House Thrift Store, and Goodwill;
Separate areas for metals, mattresses, tires and woody debris/ yard waste as well as construction type materials (lumber, etc) are designated by signage. Please keep in mind these type items should be less than 4 feet in length;
Please pay attention to the signage at the facility. Signs are placed to show where specific items are to be disposed.
 
The collection facility is located adjacent to the Wetumpka Street Department at 110 Red Eagle Drive, Wetumpka, AL 36092. View the Collection Facility Location Map  on Google Maps. 
 
Anyone with specific questions about the collection facility or needing clarification, can send questions
to  trash@elmoreco.org.

Getting your Yard Ready for Spring!
Posted on Apr 21st, 2021
How to Prepare Your Lawn & Garden for Spring 
 
Although we're still in our Winter season, it's time to start thinking about spring projects, such as your lawn.
Winter weather can leave your grass, shrubs and trees weak and hungry, especially after months of lying dormant.  If you want them to come back fuller and lusher than ever, follow these simple tips from Ed Laflamme, a Landscape Industry Certified Manager. 
 
Get your yard ready for Spring.
 
Do some cleaning.
The first step to prepping your lawn for spring is to clean up the leaves, twigs and other debris that have gathered over the winter. Rakes work, but air blowers are even easier. “Debris can get stuck in your lawn mower, and it will block fertilizers and other materials from being properly absorbed by the lawn,” Laflamme says.
 
Apply fertilizer, pre-emergent and weed killer.
 
Early in spring, use a combination of fertilizer, which feeds your grass, and pre-emergent, an herbicide used to prevent crabgrass. Then, six to eight weeks later, apply both products again, along with a broadleaf weed killer. “You don’t want to let crabgrass come up or you’ll be fighting it all season,” Laflamme says. He notes that many lawn care brands offer a combination of pre-emergent and weed killer in one application, which will lower your cost and the time it takes to apply them.
 
Mow early, mow often.
 
“If you let the grass grow too high and then cut it, it stunts the roots so they can’t reproduce properly,” he warns. 
 
Pick a good, heavy mulch.
 
Once your lawn is cared for, edge out your beds, trim back dead branches on shrubs and replace the mulch. 
 
Trim the trees.
“It’s hard to tell if a tree has dead branches unless you get up into it,” Laflamme says. If dead branches are left untended, they can fall, causing property damage and potential injury. Consider hiring a tree trimmer to do a “safety prune” once every three years — ideally before the leaves come out, when it’s easier to see the condition of the branches.
