Concord: Ash/Debris Cleanup Advisory

Last updated: April 24, 2018, 9:41 am

The large structure fire in Concord consisted primarily of construction materials (predominately wood). Residents should avoid direct contact and inhalation of ash/debris that was produced by the fire. Residents may use a mild soap and water to clean up ash/debris. To minimize dust generation, residents should consider lightly dampening ash/debris prior to commencing sweeping activities. Swept up ash/debris may be placed in a standard household trash receptacle. Any towels or cleaning materials should be rinsed in a sink that drains to a sanitation sewer. Residents should avoid washing or sweeping ash/debris into storm drains, as this will result in pollution accumulating in nearby creeks and rivers.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are back after being hard to find for more than 50 years. Bed bugs are a community problem and controlling them is very challenging. Without cooperation among landlords, tenants, and pest control professionals, control will not be successful.

We all need to be aware of what bed bugs look like, where they hide, how to get rid of them, and how not to move them around.

If you are a tenant and you suspect that you have bed bugs, alert your landlord immediately. Prompt action will benefit all parties.

If you are a landlord, work with a pest control company with good references and experience in bed bug treatments. For more information, check the resources below.

For recorded information on bed bugs, call 1-888-959-9911 or 211.
