Mount Pleasant Public Services continues collecting debris associated with Hurricane Dorian.
1. Why is collection taking so long?
There is an estimated 90,000 Cubic Yards of debris on the street from Hurricane Dorian. The Town tracks 337 “Neighborhoods” within the Town. Of these neighborhoods, 67 have been completed, 74 are ongoing/planned, and 196 have not been started. We are seeing on social media that residents are starting to get upset that their debris hasn’t been collected yet. It is going to take some time to get everything picked up. As more contract crews become available the pace of debris pickup will increase.
2. What is the plan for my specific neighborhood?
For numerous reasons, it is hard to project exactly when we will get into each neighborhood. Our ability to collect debris is based on the number of people we have available on any given day, the amount of equipment that is available. The pace that we collect debris is driven by the volume of debris in each neighborhood, how consolidated the debris piles are, and the traffic and travel time it takes to get from the collection point to the drop site and then back to the collection point. We will continue releasing Daily Pickup Updates after the morning coordination meetings to ensure we communicate accurate information.
3. Why is my neighborhood marked complete when my pile was missed?
There are several possibilities why your pile was missed:
If we missed your pile, please remember there will be a second pass across the entire Town once the first pass is completed. If we have the opportunity to go back to it during the first pass, we will.
We will do our best to keep you informed of our plans and progress. We thank you in advance for your patience. If you’d like to view a map of our progress visit: https://www.tompsc.com/1157/Dorian-Map
