How does Clay Electric dispose of debris?

Vegetation Management’s Rights-of-Way Re-clearing Program: Branches and brush debris from the scheduled rights-of-way re-clearing maintenance activities in improved areas, such as, yards and lawns, will be chipped, cleaned up, and hauled away. The yards and lawn areas should be left as clean as they were before the work was performed. Large limbs and wood will be cut in firewood lengths and left on-site.

If you would like to have some of the chips from the branch chipping operation for mulch or compost, it is best to ask the vegetation maintenance tree crews when they are working in your area. You may also obtain some of these chips by calling the Vegetation Management Division at our office number (352) 473-1411 or (800) 511-5998, or e-mail vegmgt@clayelectric.com. The chips are free and delivered by the truck load in an “as is” condition to the closest areas where the crews are working. Small amounts are not delivered.

Branches and brush debris that are pruned and left in unimproved areas, such as, woods and areas not maintained by the property owner, will be mowed and mulched up by a large mulching mower and left.

Branches, wood, and brush debris generated as a result of storms and storm restoration is not cleaned up by Clay Electric.

Dead and Danger Tree Program: Dead and danger trees cut along the edge of, and adjacent to, rights-of-way in improved areas, such as yards and lawns, will be cut down and left. Clay Electric will give notification, if possible, to the property owners before cutting and leaving dead and danger trees in improved areas. We will attempt to make personal contact, contact by phone, and will leave a door hanger. We will cut trees up into manageable lengths at the property owner’s request.  Dead and danger trees cut in unimproved areas, such as, woods and areas not maintained will be cut down and left on-site. Clay Electric will not clean up, remove, or haul away dead tree debris.
