Jersey City Incinerator Authority Seeks Fema Reimbursment As Hurricane Sandy Cleanup Nears Completion
Since Hurricane Sandy hit on October 29th, the Jersey City Incinerator Authority (JCIA) has removed approximately 23 million pounds of debris from the city’s neighborhoods without any help from outside contractors. This includes fallen trees, e-waste, drywall, furniture, insulation and other household and bulk items. In addition, the JCIA has spent nearly $2 million as of March 6 to help flood victims in their cleanup and recovery efforts.
The JCIA provided hurricane victims with 20, 25 and 30 cubic yard containers to dispose of their flood-damaged items for pickup by JCIA.
“We helped every resident in the city who experienced water damage from the hurricane,” said Oren K. Dabney Sr., Chief Executive Officer of JCIA. “Businesses paid for their containers and used their own contractors for the cleanup.
“Through the end of December, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has reimbursed JCIA $278,000 for our cleanup efforts,” according to Dabney. “We submitted 100 percent of our audit report to FEMA to be as transparent as possible when only 20 percent was required. So, we are cooperating fully with FEMA to receive a 75 percent reimbursement for the $2 million we spent for the cleanup. If the state legislature approves, we may be reimbursed for up to 90 percent."
“We will continue to work with FEMA to ensure that Jersey City is reimbursed at the maximum rate, which will be a great savings for the taxpayers,” said Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy. “At this time, I want to thank all the employees of the JCIA who did a tremendous job in the massive cleanup effort and to our residents and business owners who cooperated greatly in our recovery from this massive storm.”
The JCIA provides a variety of environmental quality-of-life services including the collection and disposal of residential waste and recycling materials, environmental-compliance education and enforcement, graffiti removal, litter patrol, mechanical street sweeping, property maintenance, roll-off neighborhood clean-up and private rental container services, demolition and, currently, the safe storage of impounded vehicles.
