STORM DEBRIS COLLECTION UPDATE & FAQ
Seminole County appreciates the patience of its residents during the cleanup of storm debris. At this time, over 95% of the debris piles have been collected, and the County projects completion of its final sweep by the end of Monday, November 7, 2016.
Seminole County temporarily waived the standard requirements for vegetative debris collection to assist residents with Hurricane Matthew clean up, as large branches and fence pieces did not necessarily conform to the regular requirements. If your storm debris pile was missed, please contact Solid Waste Customer Service at 407-665-2260 or email@example.com to arrange pick up. Please be reminded that the ongoing effort to collect piles is specific to debris generated by Hurricane Matthew, not more recent waste generated by pruning, tree trimming, etc.
Newly placed yard waste should fit the below standard yard waste requirements.
WHAT ARE STANDARD YARD WASTE REQUIREMENTS?
Yard waste set out for curbside collection should be containerized which means either:
-Placed in a waste can (less than 50 gallons),
-Placed in a garbage bag, or
-Tied in bundles.
WHAT ARE THE YARD WASTE LIMITS?
Hauler will collect up to 15 containerized yard waste items; each must be less than 50 pounds in weight and 4 feet in length.
WHERE SHOULD I PLACE DEBRIS?
Debris should not block fire hydrants, curb drains, or above-ground utilities or meters. Please do not park vehicles in front of debris. If debris is blocked, it will not be picked up.
Day-to-day household refuse will be picked up on regularly scheduled collection days.
Households within City limits of Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Lake Mary, Longwood, Oviedo, Sanford and Winter Springs should check with their respective solid waste provider to determine additional collection dates.
