Hurricane Matthew – Yard Waste and Construction Debris Removal (Update)
The following information is being provided to our residents and the local media in reference to our continuing efforts to remove debris created by Hurricane Matthew.
Crowder Gulf: Disaster Recover & Relief has been contracted by the City to pick up yard waste debris and construction debris. Yard waste debris has been the first priority. While many areas of the City have had some removal of their debris, as of today, the first pass throughout the entire City has yet to be completed. This may be accomplished as early as Saturday, November 5, 2016.
Crowder Gulf will be removing yard waste on Central Avenue South this Wednesday and Thursday,November 2 and 3. Expect delays and be courteous motorists while this is being done. Depending on the rate of re-construction work on SRA1A, it may be possible to remove the detour by Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
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.
Crowder Gulf crews will continue in the coming weeks to remove debris. A second pass for yard waste will be implemented at the completion of the first pass. When all yard debris is picked up, perhaps within the next 7 to 10 days, the focus will turn to the removal of construction debris.
The importance of separating yard waste associated with the storm from normal household garbage cannot be understated.
Crowder Gulf has been contracted for “Storm” yard waste and construction debris only.
The City’s Sanitation Department will continue to be responsible for removal of household garbage and recyclables, and will follow the same schedule established before the storm.
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.
