Local Dumpster Rental Offers Help to Milwaukee Flood Victims
Recently, there has been excessive rainfall in and around Milwaukee, Wisconsin, that has lead to severe flooding. A “state of emergency” has been declared in Milwaukee, and several cities close by. Residents are urged to use extreme caution around flood waters, and drive only when absolutely necessary. To report flood damage residents can dial 211 and speak directly to a community representative. Callers will be asked for their contact name and number, an address of the damaged property, the name of the property owner or renter, a monetary estimate of damages, and a percentage of damages covered by insurance.
The city of Brown Deer, Wisconsin has provided dumpster rental service for local residents to dispose of contaminated items. Carpet, drywall, flooring, and tiles should all be placed in a dumpster immediately, following flood contamination. The dumpsters will be placed around town, giving residents free access to the disposal receptacles.
