Monmouth County Issues Hurricane Debris Cleanup Guidelines
The debris must be separated into four categories.
The Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has put forth guidelines for debris cleanup in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
“Every resident that is cleaning up in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, should separate all debris into four major categories,” OEM Director Mike Oppegaard said. “Each town must separate storm debris from trash and the towns need the assistance of residents to move this cleanup along in and efficient and responsible manner.”
Please separate the debris into the following categories:
- Vegetation – under three (3) inches in diameter and clean wood
- Vegetative – over three (3) inches in diameter and stumps
- Regular garbage
For more information about garbage pick-up, the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management advises contacting your municipality.
