Debris Removal Update for Citrus County

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2017

Debris removal continues within Citrus County at a very manageable pace. There are approximately thirty collection vehicles working daily in Citrus County. Please keep in mind there will be only one county-wide debris collection.

The southeast quadrant of Citrus County, Inverness and Floral City areas, should be substantially complete by Monday, October 30. Crews are currently finishing up some isolated pockets but for the most part, the area is nearing completion.

Work continues in the northeast quadrant, crews are in the areas immediately north of Inverness and are working in a northerly direction.

Southwest quadrant, work is substantially complete in Old Homosassa and crews are currently in the Riverhaven Subdivision, once completed the crews will move on to Sugarmill Woods. 

To date, the County has collected more than 90,000 cubic yards of vegetative debris and has 2 debris reduction sites in operation.

Debris collection is complete on private roads in all quadrants except the northwest quadrant which is approximately 50% complete at this time.

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.
