  • Corps awards $92 million in task orders for Hurricane Sandy debris removal in NY

BROOKLYN, New York -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is collecting debris from storm-damaged neighborhoods and removing debris piles from temporary storage sites within New York City under three recently awarded task orders totaling $92 million. Assigned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to execute the Hurricane Sandy debris mission, USACE awarded the work to Burlingame, Calif.-based Environmental Chemical Corporation (ECC) International LCC. Local subcontractors hired by ECC are performing most of the work. 

USACE-contracted crews are working closely with the New York City Department of Sanitation to supplement the clean-up efforts. 

"We're augmenting city sanitation crews," said Col. Trey Jordan, commander of the USACE New York Recovery Field Office in Queens, which was established in early November to manage the debris removal mission and other FEMA-assigned work in New York. "They're telling us where they need help and we're concentrating our resources on those areas." 

USACE is focusing on removing debris from Rockaway Peninsula neighborhoods as well as trucking and barging debris from collection points in Queens and on Staten Island, NY. Crews are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help speed the recovery.

USACE is seeking to identify more local contractors and vendors that may qualify for federal work. Business owners interested in supporting the New York debris removal mission may contact Master Sgt. Charles Mason at 718-888-3185 or Charles.W.Mason@usace.army.mil. For more information about Hurricane Sandy business opportunities, please visit: https://apps.swf.usace.army.mil/Hurricane/Business
