READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The crew contracted by the City of Wilmington started removing debris from Hurricane Irene today.

Because of the large volume of debris, the city has decided to activate its storm debris pick-up contract. That means crews from a Florida-based company giving an extra hand to city workers to help clean up wilmington for the next couple weeks.

"They're out on the streets today, and that is no less than 12 additional crews working ten hour days six days per week, and they're focusing throughout the city, but particularly on areas that had not yet received pick-up service last week," city spokesman Dylan Lee said.

The crews will stay on the job for the city until all of the debris has been picked up off the streets.
