Debris Collection as of 11/29/2016
For this week, there are six trucks dedicated to Council District 1, six trucks for Council District 4, two trucks for Council District 3, and two trucks for Council District 2. In these districts, debris along arterial roads are collected, followed by collector roads, and then local roads. The concentration of trucks is evaluated and adjusted every week usually based on the progress of collection, vehicular traffic concerns, and other factors.

Hurricane Debris Removal is Under Way
Debris removal began Oct. 12 by a City debris removal contractor. Residents are advised to place materials for pick-up on the sidewalk or at the edge of property, curbside away from fire hydrants, power lines and mailboxes. Do not block drainage ditches or inlets.

Bagged yard waste must be kept separate from cut trees and limbs.

A contractor will collect the trees and limbs, and Waste Pro will collect the bags. Debris removal crews will not go onto private property to collect or remove debris.

Debris must be sorted and separated into vegetative and construction/household goods.
  • Vegetative debris – including leaves, plants, shrubs and branches – should NOT be placed in bags.
  • Construction, household and structural debris includes building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, mattresses, and plumbing materials.
