Due to the widespread amount of debris, the contractor has not been able to provide an exact schedule for pickup. However, we were notified today that the first sweep for removal of vegetative debris on the island will be done by Monday, October 23rd.
Attached is a list reflecting roads that the contractor has begun clearing, however please note that none of these roads are complete yet.
Beginning Monday, October 23rd, a majority of the trucks will move off the island to focus on vegetative debris for the areas east and west of I-95.
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. (Note: there was an attempt to only open this site open on Saturdays and Sundays due to lack of use, however drop off has increased so the site has re-opened to 7 days per week)
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.
