Hermine debris removal to begin in Glynn County
Crews to collect, remove debris Sept.12-23
GLYNN COUNTY, Fla. – Crews in Glynn County, Georgia, continue to work to remove storm debris from Hermine in the unincorporated portions of the county and St. Simons Island.
Contractors will begin debris collection and removal on Monday, Sept. 12 and will continue until Sept. 23.
Residents are asked to place vegetative debris from the storm, such as trees and limbs, in piles at the curb in front of their home no later than Monday. Officials said crews will not enter onto private property or roads to collect debris.
Residents should follow several guidelines as they place debris at the curb:
- Do not place debris on top of utilities, such as cable, phone, electrical, storm drain boxes or fire hydrants.
- Please do not place debris in front of or around mailboxes.
- Please do not place debris in front of or around driveways, as emergency vehicles may need to enter the area.
- Please drive with extreme caution in areas with large debris piles.
- Please do not block or dump any debris into the storm drains or ditches because it will cause a flood hazard.
- Please aid contractors by sweeping excess and loose debris from the street in front of homes.
Officials also ask residents not to place garbage with disaster debris because it will not be accepted. Regular trash removal services in the county will continue as regularly scheduled.
To report unsafe storm debris, call the Glynn County Public Works Department at 912-554-7746.
