Options for flood debris removal in Cape Girardeau

Roadblocks cause tricky route to take debris to Cape transfer station

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Cape Girardeau's City Council has released several suggestion for getting rid of flood debris that might have ended up on your lawn or sidewalk.

You can drop off the refuse at the City's Transfer Station starting Thursday, Jan. 7.

That's when the facility is expected to open.

The station is open on weekdays from 7 a.m. until 3:45 p.m.

Drivers cannot access the transfer station through the 2300 block of south Sprigg, because it remains closed.

To get to the building, residents must take south Kingshighway to Old 61 to south Sprigg.

The levee on south Sprigg is in-place, which means drivers should expect a more narrow road.

An alternative drop-off location through Wednesday would be CWI's privately-run facility at 18716 Highway 177 (just west of Procter & Gamble).

Rules and restrictions could apply.

For more information, please call CWI direct at 573-339-0299.

People who live in Cape Girardeau can schedule a special pick up on Wednesday, January, 6, but there are restrictions.

You can visit the City's Public Works Website, or call them at 573-339-6351.
