NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - Southern Indiana Waste Systems, the city’s contracted waste hauler, will be working on Saturday,
April 23, in the central portion of New Albany, the area most affected by the storm that tore through the city early Wednesday morning, Mayor Doug England announced today.
“The damage sustained in the central city is almost unreal,” said England, who, along with other city officials and employees, will be assisting in the clean up. “I feel that our crews are doing a wonderful job in beginning to get things back to a normal routine, but I also believe that in times like this we must do more. Many people will take advantage of the weekend to clear debris from their property.”
SIWS will work Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with four collection trucks and eight employees, according to Robert Lee, the company’s president.
