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.
