Milton residents with Hurricane Sally debris outside their homes can expect crews to start passing through their neighborhoods for a second time beginning next week.

Crews on Monday completed their first pass through the entire city to collect vegetative debris from the storm. Contractor BKW Inc. collected 10,967 cubic yards of vegetative debris, according to a city news release.

Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 20, crews will start on their second and final pass through the city to collect all types of debris, including building debris and white goods such as appliances.

Residents should not mix the piles of debris. Vegetative debris must be collected separately. 

Debris for pick up must be placed in the right of way for collection no later than Monday, Oct. 19. Make sure the debris is not covering stormwater drains or inlets, which could intensify flooding if there is a storm.

Residents with vegetative debris also can transport the materials to the Central Landfill for disposal. Fees for disposing vegetative debris have been waived.
