Debris pickup in areas affected by Apr. 20 storm to begin May 7

Posted on May 5, 2020 by Staff reports

Santa Rosa County Public Works is coordinating with debris contractors for cleanup after the Apr. 20 storm. Work will first be done to remove hanging limbs over the rights of way followed by collection and disposal of debris which is expected to begin on Thurs., May 7. The contractor will work six days per week. 

Debris must be placed on the right of way and vegetative debris must be separated from construction debris. No leaves, furniture, white goods (appliances) or vehicles will be picked up. 

Pickup will be limited to storm-impacted areas determined by damage assessment teams. Two passes will be made over a two-to three-week period. As debris is removed, residents are encouraged to promptly place additional storm debris on the right of way. For questions, call 850-626-0191.
