Panama City has picked up 20 years’ worth of debris after Hurricane Michael. They’re still not finished.
According to the Palm Beach Post, in the midst of 90 days, Panama City has picked up 20 years’ worth of debris from the roadside.
Since Hurricane Michael swept through the region with a grudge against trees, city contractors have picked up 2.5 million cubic yards worth of debris, Panama City solid waste manager Shane Daugherty said, with an estimated 1.5 million cubic yards to go.
“This is an addition to the clean-up happening in the county. Bay County has picked up around 5 million cubic yards of debris, and when all is said and done officials are expecting to have about 9 million cubic yards of debris cleared,” said Mayor Greg Brudnicki.
Daugherty said that while there is still plenty of vegetable debris out there, the majority has been collected and the second pass will likely include more construction debris. The second pass will remove large stumps, which requires special equipment.
The city is also working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to get a program approved that would allow city contractors to help clear fallen trees from private residences where the owner doesn’t have adequate insurance coverage or the means to handle their debris.
