Clermont County will have two support trailers available to provide a variety of services for people impacted by the recent tornados and severe weather.

The services will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday in the parking lot at 30 Wells Street in Moscow.

Clermont Department of Job and Family Services will be providing public assistance and help replace items, such as public assistance cards, that may have been lost in the storm.

The Clermont Building Department will be answering questions about building assessments and the repair process.

The Mental Health and Recovery Board will be helping citizens with stress and other such issues related to the situation.

The Ohio Attorney General's Office is offering fraud prevention assistance.

Also due to the large amount of debris spread across Clermont County,  the Clermont-Adams Solid Waste District to determine a process for moving the debris from the impacted areas to disposal areas.

The Clermont-Adams Solid Waste District is coordinating with the Army Reserve Corp. , the County Engineer, and Ohio Department of Transportation.

Washington Township and Moscow areas have created several separate disposal areas for municipal waste, demolition debris, woody debris, household hazardous waste and steel.

  • The demolition debris area is located in a field near the Community Center in Moscow at 30 Wells Street. This type of debris is defined as lumber, siding, insulation and roofing material.
  • All steel and appliances should go in the large dumpster at the Community Center.
  • Household hazardous waste can be taken to drums located in the parking lot of the Community Center. These hazards are paint, batteries, fertilizers, pesticides, fluorescent light bulb and unknown containers of chemicals.
  • Wood debris are being collected in the Village Park north end of Second Street.
  • Two large dumpsters are for municipal solid waste. This includes food waste and non-construction materials. They will be located at Village Hall on the corner of 2nd Street and Elizabeth Street. Citizens of Moscow can also move solid waste to the curb for pick-up later in the week.

In Franklin Township and Felicity, the Solid Waste District and Clermont Engineer's Office will chip smaller, woody debris on-site in the impacted area. Larger debris will be dealt with later.

To avoid further spread of the Asian Longhorned Beetle in Bethal, all woody debris in Tate Township should be taken to the USDA facility, Marshaling Yard, 2896 State Route in Bethel. This yard will be open this week from 7:30 a.m. to dark on Monday through Friday. It will also be open from 8 am. Until 5 p.m. on Saturday.
