Private Roads included in Hurricane Irma Residential Debris Collection
There will be one countywide pick up of vegetative debris at residential addresses beginning October 2, which will include private roads. All vegetative debris should be at the roadside/curbside no later than October 2, as we cannot predict the exact date the contractor will be in any given neighborhood. The contractor will begin work in the southeast corner of the County and work counter clockwise from there. Residents are urged to reduce tree limbs/trunks to “no longer” than 4’ in length. The residential storm debris will be collected from every publicly accessible road in the County, including private roads, as long as debris is placed where it can be mechanically collected.
To facilitate the cleanup, we are asking all citizens to follow these guidelines:
- There will be ONE residential debris pick up, which will take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.
· Only storm generated natural vegetation will be collected.
· Please bring all storm generated natural vegetation to the curbside as quickly as possible.
· Do not place vegetative yard debris in plastic bags.
· Reduce tree limbs/trunks to “no longer” than 4’ in length.
· Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris around mailboxes, water meters, fire hydrants, next to fences, cars, telephone poles or under guide wires.
· Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris in the road.
· If you decide to perform your own cleanup and drive items to the landfill, you will be charged the normal prices.
· Storm related vegetative debris removed by contractors is not eligible for pick up.
· The debris pick up includes residential properties only. It does not include commercial and business properties.
A thorough and effective cleanup of the entire county will require several weeks. We are asking that residents be patient during this time.
