Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael, AshBritt Environmental has made significant progress in debris recovery efforts throughout the panhandle of Florida. AshBritt is working under prepositioned contracts in Leon, Gulf, and Bay counties. Making local economic recovery a priority, AshBritt has hired numerous local contractors to assist with the post disaster clean-up.
To date, AshBritt, has collected approximately:
- Bay County (includes CY for Callaway, Springfield, & Lynn Haven): 750,000 cubic yards, including the removal of more than 4,000 hazardous tree and trees limbs
- Gulf County: 165,000 cubic yards
- Leon County: 490,000 cubic yards, including the removal of more than 800 hazardous tree and trees limbs
- City of Tallahassee: 250,000 cubic yards, including about 50 trees
“AshBritt is proud of its efforts to assists in the recovery efforts of the Florida panhandle,” said AshBritt CEO Brittany Perkins. “We are working as safely and expeditiously to bring normalcy to these affected communities and look forward to also assisting with longer term recovery efforts.”
Supporting innovation and methods to effectively communicate with impacted citizens, AshBritt created an animated video, Debris Management 101, to share with local governments which they can in-turn share with their respective communities. The goal of this 2-minute animated video is to communicate what can at times be a complex issue into something that is more understandable and which local governments can share on social media or email. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=122&v=csVpvu2D9x4.
