Report Storm Damage

Special Storm-Related Yard Waste Collection
Place all storm-related vegetative yard debris curbside in preparation for collection, either in bundles, piles or containers. This is for vegetation only (bushes, tree branches, palm fronds, etc). There is no need to call and report a special pickup.
Solid waste crews are first responders for storm debris cleanup. They are currently working hard to clear debris from streets, which is the top priority. They will begin residential debris cleanup ASAP, likely beginning Monday, October 3rd. Please leave debris curbside until it can be collected. This may not line up with your regularly scheduled collection day.
