Flood Relief Dumpster Sees A Lot Of Use

The City of Greenville is providing a dumpster to residents who sustained damage due to the Monday August 12 flood event.

The dumpster is on the empty lot near the intersection of Third and Water streets.

Bill Grider, city public works superintendent, reported the dumpster has been well-used the past 10 days. By last Friday, the dumpster was nearly full of water-damaged furnishings and other items.

The dumpster was emptied for the weekend and by late Sunday afternoon items were out the top.

It was emptied again and Grider reported on Wednesday that it was nearly full.

The dumpster will be on the site through August.

Citizens are asked to only bring items that were damaged in the flood.

They must be put in the dumpster.

Items not accepted include batteries, electronics, landscape waste, major construction materials, oil, paint and tires.

The Greenville area received nine to 12 inches of rain on August 12 which resulted in many homes and buildings having water in them.
