Storm Debris Removal Update
We are contracting with Lake County and a 3rd party contractor for debris removal in the City. There are a few items that need to be addressed to help insure the most efficient and timely removal of the extraordinary amounts of storm debris left by Hurricane Irma.
- The FEMA contractor will only pick up vegetation brush piles.
- Please separate any none brush items – bagged trash, bulk items, sand bags etc.
- If piles are mixed with brush, bags and bulk items the piles will not be picked up.
- The City will pick up all of the non-vegetative bulk items – bagged trash, bulk items, furniture etc.
- Sand bags will not be picked up. Please dump the sand in your yard and throw the used bags in the trash can. Or you can take them to the county landfill in Astatula.
- Please stack the piles at the curb – not the roadway - away from mailboxes, poles, water meters and hydrants. We do not want to grab anything that is not meant for pick up.
The City will start bulk pick up Monday morning on each routes trash day.
Residents can call Lake County Solid Waste at 352-343-3776, for their debris questions.
- For safety, please keep road rights-of-way free from visual obstructions by stacking storm debris away from intersections and at heights that do not interfere with motorists’ and bicyclists’ line of sight.
- The Central Landfill Facility is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., 7 days per week, until further notice. All other convenience centers will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, until further notice. All residential disposal fees have been suspended until Oct. 2. Residents may bring storm-related vegetative debris to the Central Landfill Facility or convenience centers for disposal, free of charge.
