CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBS) - So what do you do with all the debris left in the wake of Hurricane Irene?  Towns throughout the region have developed their own plans to deal with getting rid of the mess.

Cherry Hill residents can call the township for the next couple of weeks to arrange for special pickups, according to township spokesman Dan Keashen.

“We will come out there up until mid-September, and we will stop at your house and take away whatever debris is there,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

He says they’d like the debris cut down to 50-pound pieces, but will be flexible about that, at least for the remainder of the week.

You can also arrange for a separate pickup of bulk items, like appliances, that were damaged by flood waters.
