WINTER PARK, Fla. — Winter Park residents will soon have the opportunity to eliminate the debris left by Hurricane Ian.


CERES Environmental, with Federal Emergency Management Agency-imbursed, contracted crews, is expected to finish its “first-pass” debris collection in Winter Park by Sunday.

This pickup will be throughout the entire city.

Solid waste provider Waste Pro, which is responsible for picking up bagged and bundled vegetation, should be complete on Saturday.

The crews will pick up three cubic yards of debris per customer so the trucks do not fill up quickly.

City of Winter Park employees will also provide teams to help pick up the bagged debris on Saturday.
