This is an estimate of the tonnage by Good Neighbors using the 16' trailers with walls. We weren't keeping accurate numbers but rough counts and weight-by-yardage estimates. We stopped tracking after a few days.
Sunday March 19 - 45 tons
Monday March 20 - 13 tons
Saturday March 25 - 40 tons
Sunday March 26 - 35 tons
Total: 133 Tons
James T. is also running through the neighborhoods with a 20' long, short-sided trailer picking up many loads. Less volume per trip, but many trips. We have no way of measuring their tonnage but James and his various teams are crushing it clearing brush.
And John is just driving everywhere with his red pickup, finding and loading brush, hauling it to the CC drop-off, and starting over again.
If you see James, John, or any Good Neighbor team, please say Thank You!

It's hard keeping this up to day, and I've fallen way behind. It's not likely to improve and for that I apologize but life and work get in the way.
Something had to give and it was the historical updates...
James T. continued with a small crew and finished clearing Cat Hollow 1 then continued with the Woods and other close areas. Progress continues slowly but more help is needed.
James T. and a small crew continued cleanup efforts. Most/all of the Meadows were cleared but we just need to confirm remaining effort.
Great work Saturday, longer update coming Monday when I have time to write it...
Fri March 24 - cancelled ***
Thu March 23 - cancelled ***
Wed March 22 - MUD closed.
Drop-offs closed on Wednesdays
*** canceled due to lack of volunteers
No pickup and drop-offs.
We didn't have enough volunteers and none had a truck, so this day was canceled. Also, the weather didn't cooperate, so the MUD wasn't allowing drop-offs anyway.
This was a slow day with only one volunteer (Shean H) working the morning. In the afternoon, three additional volunteers (Lori F, Jarod R, Kim F) joined Shean. We also had some neighbors help on their yards, with one neighbor helping for several yards and volunteering for future days! Thank you!
We were able to clear Whitebrush Loop and more on Sabertooth.
Part 1 - This was our first full day of both loading and unloading, and it went great!
Volunteers today included Kim F, Lori F, Jarek P, Chris P, John B, Nicole B, Aaron F, Scott M, Jason W, Jarod R, Alec R, Vadim M, and Richard S. We also got a lot of help from neighbors today, this is very much appreciated. In fact, one neighbor we cleared around 1:00, stayed with us for the rest of the day and is volunteering for more days; thanks Richard!
Part 2 - Between both trucks/trailers, we got around 14 full loads. And the MUD informed me that they had around 98 drop-offs today. That's amazing! Thank you to everyone clearing their brush!!!
The streets that were cleared today included Ronchamps (CH), Avignon (CH), Campeche Bay (CH), Whitebrush Loop (Village). And we started on Village Oak Loop, Ansonia Trail, Valona, and Sabertooth.
That might not sound like a lot, but it was huge!
Kim F, Lori F, and Pete A built 6' walls for one 16' trailers then started at Brushy Creek Village. John B also helped load in the afternoon. We did about 12 homes and got 3/4 of Whitebrush Loop completed. This was only the first street of 5 and filled the first truck/trailer. Of the 12 homes completed, one neighbor and his son helped, we greatly appreciated that.
Kim F finished adding walls to the second trailer in preparation for Sunday.
