Debris removal contractors are working
throughout the City. We estimate it will take up to 20 days to complete
the first pass. The City’s contractor Crowder Gulf, began debris
collection from the City’s rights-of-way on Saturday, September 16. As of
the close of business on Sunday, September 24, 725 loads of debris had been
collected (32,271 cubic yards) in nine days. They have also removed 20
leaning trees and 2,521 hanging limbs.
The debris removal
crews are currently in neighborhoods throughout the City. Attached is a
map of areas where a first pass has occurred as indicated by red dots.
Each dot does not represent a household, but rather an area where debris has
been pushed into a pile and picked up. Root balls and large stumps will
be removed after all other storm debris has been removed.
If you hire a
contractor for tree removal services, they are required to remove the debris
from your property and properly dispose of it pursuant to City of Ormond Beach
Code of Ordinances, Section 10-65, Contractor Debris.
Also, please be
advised that open burning of commercial waste, residential trash,
garbage, lawn debris, clippings, trees or other debris on residential,
commercial or industrial property is prohibited within the City. (City
of Ormond Beach Code of Ordinances, Section 9.2)
If you have any
questions, please contact the City’s Public Works Department at
