Disaster Debris Removal Underway; Residents Asked to Separate Debris

Post Date:10/10/2016 11:54 AM

Recovery efforts are underway in response to Hurricane Matthew in the City of Melbourne. Clearing and removing disaster debris is a major part of the recovery effort.

The City is in the process of activating disaster debris removal, which will begins as soon as possible.

Residents are asked to separate disaster debris as follows, and place it in piles at the curb in the public right-of-way, not on private roads.

  • Construction and demolition materials (building construction materials – fencing and other wood, metal, drywall, shingles, etc., as well as building contents and personal property – furnishings, clothing, appliances, etc.)
  • Vegetative materials (trees, limbs, brush, leaves, etc.)

Please be advised that debris removal crews WILL NOT, at this time, enter onto private property to collect or remove debris.

All debris must be placed in separate piles at the curb in the public right-of-way, as described above.  It is the home/business owner’s responsibility to bring the debris to the curb and to properly separate it.

Your cooperation will make this debris removal operation proceed smoothly and ensure that the community recovers as quickly as possible.

Garbage and recycling collection from carts and yard waste in cans will be collected on your regular schedule by Waste Management.
