Due to the widespread amount of debris, the contractor has not been able to provide an exact schedule for pickup. However, the contractor is on track to be done with the first sweep of vegetative debris on Amelia Island by Monday, October 23rd. There are now 10 vegetative haul trucks in operation and beginning on the 23rd, a majority of them will be moved off the island to focus on vegetative debris removal for the areas east and west of I-95. The contractor was also able to secure 4 cut trucks this week to begin removing trees and branches on public property that are leaning and/or hanging that meet FEMA's definition to be declared a threat to public safety.
Attached is a list reflecting roads that the contractor has begun clearing, however please note that none of these roads are complete yet.
As a reminder, two drop off sites have been established for citizens who wish to deliver their debris in lieu of waiting for a contractor, or for those residing on private roads. Both sites will accept vegetative debris free of charge with proof of residency. Neither bagged debris nor construction debris will be accepted at the sites. Contractors are NOT authorized to use these sites:
- Bailey Road Maintenance Yard located at 3163 Bailey Rd in Fernandina Beach. Open seven days per week from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- Hilliard Maintenance Yard located at 37356 Pea Farm Road in Hilliard. Open seven days per week from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
We will make announcements at a later time regarding second sweeps for vegetative debris. It is undetermined at this time when the contractor will have haul trucks available to pick up the construction debris.
