YARD WASTE DEBRIS REMOVAL
In our efforts to assist our residents with the removal of yard waste created by Hurricane Matthew, the City has contracted Crowder Gulf: Disaster Recovery & Relief Management to pick up yard waste debris.
The coordinated efforts will begin tomorrow, Thursday October 13, 2016 and removal will begin on the west side of the City. Crowder Gulf crews will work their efforts eastward and multiple passes will be made in the coming week to assist with yard waste debris removal.
Citizens can put un-bagged yard waste to the side of the road for removal. Yard waste consists of the following; branches, leaves, trees limbs, underbrush, etc.
The importance of separating yard waste debris associated with the storm from normal household waste/garbage (Class 1) and construction debris (treated wood, metal, aluminum siding, etc.) cannot be understated. At this time, Crowder Gulf will make multiple passes for yard waste only.
Our City Sanitation crews will be picking up household garage (Class 1) as normal and our crews along with Crowder Gulf may pick up construction debris in the very near future. “We’re asking our citizens to separate waste into three (3) categories; yard waste debris, house waste/garbage (Class 1) and construction debris. Our goal is to remove debris created by Hurricane Matthew as quickly as possible and the assistance of our residents is paramount to these efforts”.
If there are any questions regarding the removal or yard waste debris (or any other trash removal questions), please feel free to contact City Hall at (386) 517-2000.
