Hurricane Irma – Yard Waste and Construction Debris Removal
The following information is being provided to our residents and the local media in reference to our efforts to remove debris created by Hurricane Irma.
Crowder Gulf: Disaster Recover & Relief has been contracted by the City to pick up yard waste debris and construction debris. The removal of both yard waste and construction debris as quickly as possible is one of our first priorities. There are many areas of the City that have significant amounts of debris, and Crowder Gulf’s first pass in those affected areas will begin tomorrow, Friday, September 22, 2017.
Citizens can put un-bagged yard waste and construction debris 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 associated with the storm from normal day-to-day 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 the removal of household garbage and recyclables. City crews will follow the regular trash and recyclable schedule established prior to the Hurricane Irma. Any yard waste that remains after Crowder Gulf completes their contract will be removed by our City Sanitation crews.
If there are any questions regarding the removal of yard waste/construction debris or any other trash removal questions, please feel free to contact City Hall at (386) 517-2000.
