UPDATE: Hurricane Irma Disaster Recovery and Debris Removal
Mayor Bagshaw, City Clerk Meeks and Chief Freeburg met with a representative from Crowder Gulf today regarding the City’s disaster recovery and debris removal. We are waiting for confirmation to retain a monitoring company to assist in the recovery. Once confirmed, we will post the date and time when the trucks will be brought in to begin hauling.
In preparation for pickup, please note the following:
- DO NOT PILE DEBRIS IN THE ROADWAY! This will block the flow of water and cause flooding. It may also block the road itself.
- PLEASE SEPARATE ANY AND ALL CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS FROM VEGETATIVE DEBRIS.
- WE ENCOURAGE NEIGHBORHOODS AND SUBDIVISIONS TO WORK AS A COMMUNITY AND PILE YOUR DEBRIS COLLECTIVELY.
- PLEASE NOTE: NO DEBRIS WILL BE PICKED UP IF IT BLOCKS THE ROADWAY OR STORM DRAINS, OR IF PLACED NEAR TREES, POLES, FIRE HYDRANTS, OR OTHER STRUCTURES.
- ALL CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS AND VEGETATIVE DEBRIS SHOULD BE PLACED AT LEAST 10 FEET AWAY FROM THESE AREAS.
- Please clean your common areas as the City does not maintain those areas.
- The City will only clear trees that block the road. The City does not come on private property.
- We will not send any code enforcement violations for debris resulting from Hurricane Irma that has been properly placed.
- Continue to monitor our website at www.edgewood-fl.gov. Thank you for your patience as we work together to get through this challenging time.
