Posted on CDOT's website is this explanation of the debris that is being removed: "Vegetative debris is defined as branches, plants, trees, and grass that came loose during the flood. Construction and demolition debris is defined as wood framing from houses, furniture, carpet, clothes, concrete, etc. Regular household garbage will not be accepted and should be disposed of by residents. Once collected, debris is taken directly to local landfills for final disposal or to CDOT properties to be reduced and eventually used for construction or slope stabilization."
