Waste Management Collection Update: Please Leave Containers Curbside Until Picked Up
Multiple Waste Management routes throughout the City and countywide are running very late due to extremely heavy volume after Hurricane Matthew.
Routes that do not finish each workday will be first priority the next morning, and several at this stage are continuing into the afternoon.
Residents are advised to keep their containers curbside as the routes are picked up in sequence. Also, HOAs are asked for their understanding and patience during this period.
Waste Management is using all of its available resources and collection personnel during the maximum hours allowed to collect garbage, recycling and yard waste in containers curbside. However, the dramatically increased volume is requiring additional landfill trips, which impacts their operational speed.
Separate Disaster Debris; Place in Public Right-of-Way
Residents are asked to separate disaster debris into separate piles 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.
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.
