First Coast cities plan debris removal services

Surveying damage in Arlington

Cities across the First Coast have begun planning for clean up in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.

The City of Jacksonville tweeted on Sunday that loose debris will be collected by storm recovery crews. There will be no volume limit and the damage does not need to be place in a container. Residents are asked to pile the debris on the curb outside their homes.

Regularly scheduled trash pickup will be limited to bagged and containerized waste, with the five cubic yard limit still in effect.

Flagler County has also begun the process. Residents are asked to collect debris and place it on the the public right-of-way on their curbs. Debris removal will begin on Monday, October 10. 

Residents are asked to separate vegetative debris from construction and demolition damage. Bagged debris will not be collected, so the loose debris should remain visible.

Hazardous waste can be dropped off at 1700 South Old Kings Road, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Flagler County has a debris hotline that can be reached at 386-586-5111.

*The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has organized Helping Hands Volunteers who will begin cleanup on Sunday. The service is free to all of northeast Florida and residents looking for help can call the toll-free hotline 1-800-451-1954.
