Debris Removal Process
The Glynn County Board of Commissioners (BOC) will be seeking disaster relief assistance from FEMA and GEMA following Hurricane Idalia. To seek disaster relief assistance, Glynn County will need to follow specific procedures and policies supplied by FEMA regarding the process for debris removal.
The FEMA debris removal process focuses on larger debris from the storm. It is based on a mechanized method of removing debris that is too cumbersome to be removed by the homeowner and/or an overall volume that is overwhelming for local agencies to remove in a reasonable period of time.
Leaves, pine straw, moss or small debris that can fit in a trash bag will not be removed by the contractor due to it not being eligible for FEMA reimbursement. This is why in some cases, leaves, pine straw, moss and smaller debris or small amounts of debris are being left behind. As the process is dependent on mechanized removal, the hand raking or loading of smaller debris is not part of the FEMA reimbursable process.
- Only place hurricane-generated debris at curbside.
- Do not place any regular landscape waste at curbside. If the debris pile is green, the contractor will not collect the debris.
- Do not rake leaves, pine straw or moss into a pile and place at curbside.
- Do not place debris on top of utilities, for example: cable, phone, electrical, storm drain boxes or fire hydrants.
- Do not place debris in front of or around your mailbox.

Hurricane Idalia Debris Removal and Pick-up will begin September 20.
Forms required for private roads and HOAs need to be turned in by close of business Monday, September 18.
The Glynn County Board of Commissioners (BOC) will be seeking disaster relief assistance from FEMA and GEMA. President Biden approved Governor Brian Kemp's request for an expedited major disaster declaration for Individual Assistance and Public Assistance on Thursday, September 7. To seek disaster relief assistance, Glynn County will need to follow specific procedures and policies supplied by FEMA.
The storm debris removal will be a “single pass” operation meaning the contracted hauler will make a single pass on roads and streets in unincorporated portions of Glynn County and St. Simons Island.
What do I do to prepare for the pick-up of my storm debris?
- If you are cleaning up your property and have storm-related yard debris for pickup, we ask you to please place it out on the curb away from power lines, drains, fire hydrants, water meters, and not in the right-of-way. Do not place debris on the street surface or sidewalk and do not place debris in a location that blocks vehicle or pedestrian access.
- Residents are asked to place storm-generated vegetative debris in piles at the curb in front of their homes. Debris placed in bags will not be picked up unless you have contracted with Republic Services for annual debris pick-up services. All debris must be placed in piles at the curb, as described above. It is important debris is not comingled and must be separated by type. Only tree limbs and any other organic debris generated by Hurricane Idalia will be collected and removed.
- Comingled piles, household trash, tires, or construction debris will not be removed during the debris removal operation.
Because private roads and gated communities are private property, the County is restricted from initiating work on the property without prior approval from the property owner.
