• Normal garbage collection has resumed.
• Recycling collection through their private companies is back today for residents who have their scheduled days this week.
• All of the MDC landfills, transfer stations and Trash and Recycling Centers (TRC's) have been fully operational and have worked throughout the weekend.
• The debris removal process is heavily regulated by FEMA. They have approximately 140 trucks with crews that hit the streets this morning. Projections indicate that they will collect approximately 400,000 tons of debris. That is a significantly higher tonnage than what they collect in a full year. They are committed to working daily, around the clock, to make this happen. Please know that it took the County almost 90 days after Wilma to collect all of the hurricane debris.
