Overton County Ice Storm Community Cleanup

Overton County is asking locals to volunteer this Saturday to cleanup debris from the February ice storm.

There’s an estimated 60,000 cubic yards of debris down in the county. Overton-Pickett County 911 Public Relations Traci Masiongale said Airport Road, Oakley Allons Road and Rock Crusher Road are the target areas.

“A lot of the county is elderly people where it was hardest hit,” Masiongale said. “They’re having a lot of trouble if some of the volunteers can just help get that debris to the sides of the road. Then some other county departments can come and help them get it cleaned up. This is going to speed the process up faster.”

Masiongale said Volunteers are meeting at Livingston Academy at 7:00 AM and will be shuttled by bus to cleanup sites. Any church groups interested in volunteering can help by bringing their own bus to the meetup site. Volunteers are asked to bring their own gloves and food.

Overton County has been assisted by Team Rubicon and Inspiritus since the aftermath of the ice storm. Residents can also call 403-HELP to schedule debris pickups.
