Orange County residents will soon not have to stare outside at large piles of debris left behind by Hurricane Irma.
Crews from Orange County Public Works began removing the piles of dead tree limbs, twigs and leaves last Friday. However, the county has released a more detailed map on when residents can expect debris pickup on their street.
Information can be found here and the map will be updated weekly. Residents can also call 3-1-1 for more information about locations.
The debris pick-up is only for residents in unincorporated Orange County, officials said.
Household garbage, recycling and regular yard waste will continue to be picked up Solid Waste on regular scheduled days. Due to volume of yard waste, crews are running a few days behind, but are working extended hours and Saturday to catch up, officials said.
· Citizens should move their vegetative debris to the curb for pickup. Separate vegetative debris (tree limbs, branches, shrubs) and make sure they’re not bagged. Residents should bag leaves and have them picked up by yard waste. Debris pickup cannot have anything in bags. Do not block fire hydrants, storm drains and mailboxes with debris.
· Do not mix garbage and construction debris with vegetative debris. Construction material such as fencing, shingles and lumber should be a separate pile and will be collected at a later date.
· Orange County is anticipating completing debris pickup in eight weeks – however, there is not a definitive end date as of now and this is a fluid situation.
· There are still have 11 debris sites open 7 days per week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
· Any resident from Orange County (including from municipalities) can drop off at any of the 11 debris sites.
