BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – As of Friday, the City of Rockledge has completed clearing debris that resulted from Hurricane Matthew, which impacted the Space Coast in early October.
Both vegetative waste and construction refuse has been cleared from the City’s 11.5 square miles.
“Having a self-contained Sanitation Division that we control and operate has made a tremendous difference in our ability to swiftly remove debris and get our community back to normal,” said City Manager Jim McKnight.
“Our employees worked tirelessly to clear the 20,551 cubic yards of debris, and they did a remarkable job,” McKnight said.
Normal garbage pick-up operations will resume on Friday, Nov. 4, with special pickups for large household items to resume on Monday, Nov. 7.
Typically, special pickups are on Wednesday of each week, unless there is a holiday.
