As residents begin the cleanup process after Hurricane Irma, we urge everyone to know the best way to remove debris from their property. Don’t wait to clean up storm damage. Document damage with photos or videos. Take care when cleaning up. Dangling power lines, flooding and other hazards remain. If trees and other debris have fallen on your private property, be sure to check with your insurance agent to determine if tree damage is covered by your policy. As you clean up, be sure to keep in mind the following information:

Debris removal from private property is generally the responsibility of the property owner, just as before the hurricane. We will announce dates for debris collection as soon as it is determined. Separate debris into six categories when disposing along the curb:

  • Electronics, such as televisions, computers or phones;
  • Large appliances, such as refrigerators, washers, dryers, stoves or dishwashers.  Be sure to seal or secure the doors so that they are not accessible to children or animals.
  • Hazardous waste, such as oil, batteries, pesticides, paint or cleaning supplies. If you suspect that materials contain lead-based paint, keep them moist or contain materials in plastic bags so that the paint does not become airborne;
  • Vegetative debris, such as tree branches, leaves or plants;
  • Construction debris, such as drywall, lumber, carpet or furniture; and
  • Household garbage, discarded food, paper or packaging. FOLLOW YOUR NORMAL GARBAGE COLLECTION SCHEDULES FOR HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE. Visit Womack Sanitation for information.

Place debris away from trees, poles or structures including fire hydrants and meters. Remove all water-damaged materials from your home and place curbside for pickup. Debris should not block the roadway or the view of the roadway.

 

Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
