The deadline to deliver flood debris to collection sites in north Snohomish County has been extended to Feb. 16, according to Arlington's emergency management coordinator Chris Badger.

The debris collection sites will remain open until Feb. 16 at Patty’s Egg Nest at Island Crossing in Arlington, at the Stanwood Camano Fairgrounds on Pioneer Highway near Stanwood,and at Stocker Fields in Snohomish.

All residents in flood-affected areas are allowed to dump household items such as carpets, furniture, appliances and household hazardous waste at the sites for free, but they must provide identification or a utility bill showing they live in a flood-affected area.

"Property owners in flood zones need to deliver their debris to the sites as soon as possible," "This was the first time the county offered this service and it seems to be doing really well," Badger said.
