Since Hurricane Irma passed through Gainesville as a Category 1 hurricane, cleanup efforts have been widespread across the Alachua County area. Numerous trees are down, and there are also many instances of flooding, such as the included photograph, courtesy of WUFT, showing flooding in the Turkey Creek neighborhood. Robin Lane, Hills of Santa Fe, and many other neighborhoods, including basically the entire area surrounding the intersection of University Avenue and 34th Street, have all been impacted by flooding.
As far as tree/yard debris goes, to the extent that you’re doing it yourself, the City of Gainesville has stated that it will be picking up branches and logs cut in 5-foot lengths, up to 8-inches in diameter, along with leaves and other vegetative debris in brown paper bags or reusable garbage cans.
