DOTD said debris placed on state roadways after pickup completion will have to be removed through normal means, not by state contractors.
Debris removal process tips from DOTD:

- Dark colored bagged debris will not be removed.
- Please do not put debris on power lines, fire hydrants, utility stub outs or anything that would hinder the claw that grabs the debris.
