Greensboro Extends Deadline For Storm Debris Removal

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Almost everywhere you look, you can still find down tree limbs from our recent ice storm.

The city of Greensboro waived restrictions on the size of debris you could put on the curb. What about a 30-foot long limb? We sent a picture to the city. And yes, crews will pick it up.

Originally, Friday was the deadline for debris to be picked up. But no-limits means less truck space. That means crews have to make multiple passes through neighborhoods. A city spokesperson says they've only collected about a third of the debris so far.

There's also an option for you to personally drop off debris. You can bring your downed trees and limbs to the White Street landfill without paying tipping fees, indefinitely.

Now, if you don't live in the city, but are in Guilford County - here's what you need to know: Pick-up won't start until April and limbs can't be longer than eight feet.
