The recent storm in Orange Park caused a significant amount of debris; more so than Hurricane Matthew did. However, this was not a named storm. The Town is on its own for debris management. There will not be any County or FEMA assistance for cleanup.
The Town is committed to removing all of the debris by the end of February. This will be done using Advanced Disposal crews, running on an extended schedule, and Town crews. Normal pickup rules are in place – 5 cubic yards of debris limit per pick up.
Residents need to cut large limbs and trunks into 4 foot lengths with a 6 inch diameter. The Town will not be able to pick up limbs that exceed this size. The Town will gather all debris except those that are too large to take. Also, the Town is not responsible for picking up debris from private tree contractors.
Please contact Public Works Department, 904-264-7411, for additional information.
