The last pass for storm debris removal in Limestone County will begin June 23, according to the Limestone County Emergency Management Agency. 

The removal does not apply to residents inside the Athens city limits.

Hazardous waste such as paint, bleach and pesticides will not be picked up.

Residents should have storm debris out for pickup by June 23, officials said.

Debris must be separated into piles on the backside of ditches, away from the roadway. Officials ask residents not pile debris by mailboxes or fire hydrants.

Vegetative debris, which includes trees, limbs and brush, and construction debris, such as building materials, should be separated.
