County leaders said they’ve collected about 115,000 cubic yards so far, but they still have about about a million more yards to collect.

"The bottom-line is that there is a lot and this is unprecedented and with all counties being impacted by debris we are vying for the same resources,” said Manatee County spokesperson Amy Pilson.

Wilson said forty-two crews are picking up debris. She said some crews are even working the weekends, but she didn’t have a timetable for when all debris would be collected.  

The storm cleanup will cost the county about $30 million.
