Debris Cleanup Assistance for Elderly and Disabled persons - Call 2-1-1

old-lady

Last week’s storm significantly impacted Polk County, causing power outages and leaving a lot of debris. It will take weeks for our communities to recover and clean up.

Many residents are able to clean up their own debris, have friends, neighbors or family to help, or have resources to hire a company. However, there are residents without those resources and abilities.

Polk County Emergency Management has developed a network that links volunteer groups with those in need for debris clean up. Initial priority will be given to elderly and disabled.

If you are elderly or disabled and need assistance with debris clean up, please call 2-1-1. After answering a few questions you will be connected with Crisis Cleanup to put you on a list for assistance. Please keep in mind that the need is high and the wait for assistance may be longer than you would like.

If you are a group/organization, or know of a group/organization, that would like to volunteer to help with clean-up, go to CrisisCleanup.org or VolunteerIowa.org. There are interviews and training both organizations require to be added to lists. Those processes are in place to ensure the safety of all involved.
