Storm debris cleanup in Jackson County

JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Storm debris cleanup continues in Jackson County.

As of Monday, crews picked up about 800,000 cubic yards of debris across the county.

They're still on the first pass, working to pick up the bulk of the debris.

A big concern is making sure debris is off the side of highways.

Officials said there are a couple things they want people to keep in mind when it comes to debris pick up.

"Get it as close to the roads as you can and definitely keep your yard, your construction debris, your household debris separated in piles from your tree debris," Road and Bridge Department Superintendent Jayson Cain said.

Officials said they'd like to have all debris picked up by the end of the year, but say they're taking it one day at a time.
