GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Flood clean-up is underway across the area and for homes and businesses hit with not just floodwater, but sewage too, garbage is starting to pile up.
"As soon as the water was out, we just started tearing stuff out," said Julie Heynen.
Michael and Julie Heynen's Grandville home got the worst of it; floodwater and sewage back-up poured into their home within a day.
"When I got home from work it was knee-high," she said.
And she wasn't the only one. The sight of dumpsters in her neighborhood tell the story of fully-furnished basements, destroyed.
"Drywall, carpet, carpet pad, wood," said Dan Strock, part owner of MCM Disposal.
"It's pretty easy to keep track here. We have one here, one behind, one over there, and one over there," he said, pointing to his dumpsters on Heynen's block.
"The phone really hasn't stopped ringing. I was in church Sunday and had 13 missed calls for dumpsters in church."
