In order to receive financial reimbursement, it was necessary for the City to activate a pre-positioned contract with a FEMA-approved debris management company, Ceres. Hurricane Matthew storm debris clean-up began on October 12. Since then, normal yard debris pick-up by Advanced Disposal has been postponed until at least one complete tour was done by Ceres.

The first tour will be completed by Saturday, November 5, 2016. A second tour by Ceres through the City limits will start on Monday, November 7.

Advanced Disposal will also resume the normal scheduled route for yard debris collection on Monday, November 7, as well. So far, over 1,600 tons of storm debris material has been removed following Hurricane Matthew.

Thank you for patience and assistance in making this clean-up a success.
