It's been several weeks since tropical storm Beryl barreled through the First Coast and with all the debris that came down, the city continues to work to pick it all up.
"Where we are right now is wanting to reinstitute our five cubic yard limit," says Marcie Cook with city public works.
Marcie Cook with city public works says they need to control the new waste that came in from the severe thunderstorms we've seen in the past week. She says the city is working as fast as it can, but there's still a lot out there, so they're asking for patience.
"We just need to control the amount of new stuff that's coming into our collection routes."
Cook says there are certain parts of the city, like the Arlington area and some parts of the Northside, that have not gotten as much attention from city workers as other parts of town. She says since waste collection is a continuous thing, she doesn't really have a solid end point she can give for when all the waste will finally be picked up or when you can expect crews to be coming to your area.
"We have deployed resources to go and collect not just the containerized debris that people are putting in trash cans but also to collect the loose stuff."
Private contractors must dispose of any debris they create or risk being pursued for illegal dumping.
