The following is an update on Bulk Waste as a result of Hurricane Matthew:
A month after Hurricane Matthew slammed the region, Norfolk City teams in partnership with CrowderGulf contractors collected more than 26,000 cubic yards of storm-related debris. That’s nearly half a football field worth of tree trucks, branches and limbs.
To make clean-up easy for residents after the storm, the City picked up bulk waste throughout October without a request. Starting November 4th, residents are asked to once again schedule a bulk waste pickup. Pickup will occur on the residents’ regular trash day.
CrowderGulf contractors will make a final sweep to collect large tree debris this weekend. Beginning Monday, November 7th tree limbs larger than 6” inches diameter and quantities more than 3 cubic yards is the responsibility of the property owner to remove.
Norfolk trash trucks are equipped with GPS. While crews collected a majority of storm debris, a few spots may have been missed. Residents are asked to call and schedule pickup for any storm-related debris not picked up in October.
As a reminder, do not place debris near overhead wires, water meters and fire hydrants.
To schedule a bulk waste pickup, call the Norfolk Cares Call Center 664-6510 or online at www.norfolk.gov/requesttracker.aspx
Have a wonderful weekend.
