Hermine's Debris Is Tallahassee's Mulch


Hurricane Hermine left Tallahassee with more than 2,000 truckloads of vegetative wreckage. MARPAN Recycling is turning some of that waste into wood chips. MARPAN Recycling and Marketing Manager George Loscilo explained how the debris would be repurposed. "So we’re just going to mulch it up, and reuse it," Locilo said. "You know, for us, for the public it really is not as different as far as cost. But for us, we save on that we don’t have to take it to the landfill. We are going to take it in, process it, and not take it to the landfill."

Locilo says MARPAN received more than 50 requests for large metal roll-off containers. The City of Tallahassee is still collecting and cleaning up the debris.
