MOBILE, Ala. – Today the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mobile District contractor Phillips & Jordan, Inc. began the process of debris separation and segregation along public rights of way/curbsides in the city of Tuscaloosa, Ala.


The city of Tuscaloosa requested USACE assistance through the Alabama Emergency Management Agency Operations Center and FEMA. The city is prioritizing the separation and segregation activities to begin in areas cleared by Search and Rescue.


The purpose of separation and segregation is to organize the debris for follow-on removal. To support this effort, residents are asked to separate debris at the curbside into the following categories: household garbage; construction debris; vegetative debris; household hazardous waste; white goods; and electronics. The attachment provides more detail on how residents affected by tornado storms can assist with this effort.


Phillips & Jordan provides overall management and local contractors who want to assist can find sign-up information for subcontract opportunities via the USACE Mobile District Homepage at
