CrowderGulf, the debris removal company that Hinesville and Liberty County contracted to remove hurricane debris, will begin its third and final pass 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," Hinesville 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.
CrowderGulf will also make its final pass through the county that day per a press release issued by the Liberty County Office of Emergency Management.
In order for the debris to be removed it must meet the guidelines set forth by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
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.
Debris created by roofing repair or replacement after the storm should be properly disposed of by the roofing contractor and not placed by the road. This type of debris does not qualify as storm debris and will not be picked up.
Piles containing anything other than storm debris will not be picked up.
CrowderGulf and the city’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 doing the work.
The second pass of debris removal within Hinesville was completed last week.
