When Will St. Johns County Collect Hurricane Matthew Debris? Check Its New Website

Oct 27, 2016

St. Johns County has launched a website where residents can find out when their neighborhood is scheduled for debris removal after Hurricane Matthew. 

It’s at SJCFL .US/HurricaneMatthewCleanup.

Last week, the Board of County Commissioners allocated an extra $1 million for debris collection. Public trucks are being joined by Advanced Disposal and Republic Services, for a total of 60 crews tackling the county-wide task.

The Emergency Management division says every home will have an initial debris collection by early November. Crews will make additional passes in the worst-hit areas until the job is complete.

In a news release, the county asked for patience because every corner of the 600-square-mile county was affected by the Category 3 hurricane. It skirted Florida’s East Coast on Oct. 7.
