Clay County to Waive Vegetative Tipping Fees for Storm Event

Post Date:02/16/2017 3:00 PM

On Tuesday night, February the 7th, Clay County was impacted by a severe, straight line wind event. While this event did cause damages throughout our community, the amounts were nowhere close to what is required to trigger a Federal Declaration for Assistance, similar to what the county received for Hurricane Matthew. As such, no state or federal assistance is currently available to Clay County residents in relation to this storm and no federal assistance is available to the county in order to provide for additional contractors to pick up large tree debris. Clay County will waive the residential tipping fees for vegetative debris at Rosemary Landfill from Friday, February 17th to Saturday February 25th at the close of business. This will allow residents to transport their vegetative debris to Rosemary Landfill at no cost.

All curbside, post storm debris removal related to Tuesday night’s storm is subject to normal service standards set by the community’s daily garbage hauler, Advanced Disposal (see below)

Should you have any questions regarding this debris removal criteria, please contact Environmental Services at 904-284-6374.
