Hurricane Irma Yard Debris Collection Update
Posted date: September 20, 2017
Did you know, the amount of yard debris left by Hurricane Irma is more than the City of Orlando would normally collect over 4.5 years?
Since the hurricane, our public works crews have been working seven days a week to pick up this debris.
Here’s what you can expect during the cleanup process:
Bags and small bundles (using duct tape or twine) will be picked up sooner than large piles that require a claw truck. On your regular yard waste collection day, bagged and bundled items will be collected. Because of the volume, we might not get to your street on your scheduled day but will do our best to pick up the following week.
Our crews that collect larger items like downed trees, limbs and branches are working 12-hour shifts, seven days a week, but have a limited capacity to pick up large quantities. To supplement our efforts, the city utilizes debris contractors to assist after storms. However, because of the impact of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, contractors are in short supply as they respond across Florida and Texas. Our contractors are responding as quickly as they can to assist with our cleanup efforts.
Here’s how you can help:
Bag and bundle as much of your vegetative debris as possible. If you can, help your neighbors who might need assistance bag and bundle their debris.
You can immediately drop off yard debris at one of 11 sites throughout Orange County from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily – visit ocfl.net/debris for locations.
Remember to place all large debris on the curb. Do not place debris in the roadway, on sidewalks or near fire hydrants.
If you have larger items such as appliances or furniture that were damaged in the storm, please call 407.246.2314 (Monday- Friday, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m.) to schedule a large-item pickup.
We appreciate your partnership and your patience as we continue to clean up our City Beautiful.
