Update on debris removal process throughout Bay County


Recommended Posts

Three weeks after the winds from Hurricane Michael died down, debris remains piled up high in many neighborhoods.


Leaders throughout Bay County recommend residents stay patient.

They said crews are working tirelessly in the cities and county during the day to haul stuff off.

You're asked to keep it separate from household garbage and sort it into piles, including household items, yard debris, construction items, and appliances.

If you live in Panama City, the contractor (Crowder Gulf) is running 47 double self-loader trucks within city limits.

Eleven trucks are running in Callaway, and more will be added, but it will take months to complete.

No specifics have been mentioned for Springfield, but collection is underway.

In Lynn Haven, roughly half of all debris has been collected so far as of Tuesday.

Panama City Beach has four trucks running daily that are dumping five to ten loads a day. More progress is being made closer to Pier Park because traffic is less hectic.

About 160 trucks are on the road in unincorporated Bay County and drivers have taken away 523,000 cubic yards already averaging about 75,000 cubic yards a day. County officials said traffic at the landfill is four times heavier than usual.
