After the Storm: Debris Removal and Household Garbage

Debris Placement

Waste Pro is back to their normal collection schedule.  Please have your garbage and recycling out on your normal day by 7:00 AM.  On Wednesday, September 13th, Waste Pro will pick up normal yard waste, which will include small hand piles and up to 3 bags of trimmings.

Waste Pro does not have the capability of determining what is pre-storm debris and what is post-storm debris.  Because of this, the large Claw Yard Waste Zones have been suspended to allow the Disaster Debris Collection Company to pick up storm debris.  

Please have your storm debris curbside with vegetation piled separately from bags for collection. Please see the visual below.

Below are a few points about debris removal and household garbage and recycling:

 The storm debris must be segregated as shown in picture below....
 **Household trash
 **Vegetative debris, including leaves, logs, plants and
     tree branches
 **Construction and demolition debris, including building
    materials, carpet, drywall, furniture, lumber, mattresses and  plumbing
 **Large appliances, including air conditioners, dishwashers,  freezers, refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers and water heaters.
 **Electronics, including televisions, computers, DVD  players


If you are performing the cleanup yourself or using volunteers, you may place the debris curbside, but away from fire hydrants, power lines, cable and electrical boxes, mailboxes. 

 Waste Pro will pick up normal household garbage. This is up to 3 cans not to exceed 50 lbs. per household.

 The disaster debris relief company will pick up storm debris.

 Do not place hurricane debris in the road. This obstructs traffic, hinders cleanup and power restoration efforts, and makes it difficult for emergency vehicles to pass.

 Do not place debris on or block drainage ditches or inlets to help with possible flooding.

 Household hazardous waste, which includes paint cans, aerosol sprays, pesticides and tires will not be collected.
