Clay County to begin second, final pass of debris pickup

Officials said program could take a month to complete


CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – Clay County officials announced that crews are preparing for a second and final pass of debris pickup related to Hurricane Matthew.

Clay County officials began a massive cleanup campaign on Oct. 17, one week after the hurricane. This final pass will pick up any remaining storm-related, large vegetative debris as well as any construction debris which was created by Matthew. 

The county’s storm debris contractor is currently working to identify any debris piles which were not picked up during the first pass. Residents wishing to have any remaining large, storm-related debris picked up are asked to place said materials at their curbs and to keep different types of material in separate piles. 

Residents that may have any small amounts of storm-related debris are asked to containerize said debris so that it may be picked up by the county’s normal trash service, Advanced Disposal.
