City of Pensacola Debris Collection Update
City of Pensacola Sanitation crews and contractors are continuing curbside debris pickup after Hurricane Sally, collecting over 4,000 loads totaling 176,635 cubic yards since Monday, Sept. 21.
Crews will be working extra hours from sunup to sundown this week to collect as much debris as possible in anticipation of potential impacts from Tropical Storm Delta. However, due to the large quantity of debris, crews will be unable to collect all remaining debris in the city by the end of the week.
Over 50% of the estimated total amount of debris to be collected within the city has already been collected (176,635 cubic yards collected of the 350,000 cubic yards estimated total).
The City of Pensacola will continue to monitor Tropical Storm Delta, and residents are urged to do the same. In the event that Tropical Storm Delta impacts Pensacola and residents' debris has not been collected, residents are encouraged to secure any loose debris as feasible and follow hurricane mitigation tips for securing their home.The public's patience is appreciated as crews work through every neighborhood in the city to collect the significant amount of debris generated by Hurricane Sally.
Approximately 59 contractor crews and 11 city crews are currently working throughout the city to complete the first sweep for debris collection, which is expected to continue for the next several weeks. Once crews complete the first sweep, they will make a second sweep to collect additional debris from curbsides and rights of way within city limits.
Debris pickup will be ongoing. The City of Pensacola will notify the public before making the final debris collection sweep.
