MACOMB, Ill. (WGEM) -

The City of Macomb is now picking up flood damaged debris from your home.

Waste Management will accept the following: All furniture, regardless of size; carpeting, as long it is in 2 foot wide rolls or less and weighs 50 lbs or less; other items must be contained in plastic bags, cans or regular WM solid waste containers, all weighing 50 lbs or less.

Storm-damaged electronic equipment will not be picked up at the curb, but may be delivered to the Regional Collection Facility at 510 N Pearl Street in Macomb, with hours from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and Saturday, May 4 from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
