CrowderGulf, the debris removal company the City of Hinesville contracted with after Hurricane Matthew, will begin their third pass of debris removal on Monday, Dec. 12.
“I would encourage all property owners to have any trees, limbs or other storm related debris to the curb by Dec. 12 as this will be the third and final pass that our contractors will make in the city,” City Manager Billy Edwards said.
If a property owner misses the third pass, any tree removal and disposal will have to be performed by the property owner or the contractor performing the removal at the property owner’s expense.
It is important to remember the following guidelines while completing cleanup efforts:
- Do not place debris is plastic or paper bags.
- Make sure piles are not obstructed or next to things like light poles and power lines.
- Do not co-mingle demolition debris, fencing, yard clippings or other material with storm debris.
Per the Federal Emergency Management Agency, piles not abiding by these guidelines will not be picked up.
CrowderGulf and the Hinesville's public works department will not be picking up any debris that is related to building repair, even if that repair is a result of Hurricane Matthew. All demolition debris must be removed by the property owner or the contractor performing the repair work.
The second pass of debris removal within the city limits of Hinesville will be completed this week and to date; CrowderGulf has collected approximately 60,000 cubic yards of debris from throughout Hinesville.
