Debris is piling up all along the streets in Jacksonville and other communities as residents clean up from Hurricane Irma.
The city of Jacksonville is gearing up to pick up that trash, but it is going to take time. Contractors will begin picking up debris in 11 days, on Monday, Sept. 25. Traditional yard waste pickup of up to 30 bags has already resumed, but there are limits on size and volume in the scheduled weekly pickups.

“I am hearing there is more debris than (Hurricane) Matthew,” Mayor Lenny Curry said. “But we’re going to ride our team as hard and we’re going to get people’s neighborhoods cleaned up.”
Last October, contractors made several passes through neighborhoods over a period of several weeks before all the debris was collected.
Other Northeast Florida communities have also resumed regular pickups of garbage and trash and plan to begin storm-debris pickup within days.
All communities want people to know that vegetation needs to be piled separately from construction debris, which is separate from household garbage.
