Since October 6, 2022, crews have collected more than of 220,000 cubic yards of debris, which would fill 5,500 commercial sized dumpsters or nearly 15,000 average sized dump trucks.
Crews continue to work 12-hour days, seven days-a-week to clear County maintained streets and roads, focusing on subdivisions with critical needs before addressing lesser affected areas. Following the Thanksgiving holiday, crews will resume work on Friday, November 25, 2022.
As a reminder, all storm related debris should be placed in the County’s right of way in accordance with previous guidance for collection.
