Debris Removal Quickly Winding Down in Citrus County
Debris removal in the County is quickly winding down. There are approximately thirty collection vehicles working daily in Citrus County. Please keep in mind there will be only one countywide debris collection.
The Southeast quadrant is now complete. The Southwest quadrant should be substantially complete by Monday, November 13, 2017. The Northeast and Northwest quadrants should be substantially complete by Thanksgiving provided the present pace continues. There may be a few roads that require additional cleanup past these dates.
Debris collection on private roads should be substantially complete by Monday, November 13, 2017.
To facilitate the cleanup, we are asking all citizens to follow these guidelines:
-There will be ONE residential debris pick up, which will take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.
-Only storm generated natural vegetation will be collected.
-Please bring all storm generated natural vegetation to the curbside as quickly as possible.
-Do not place vegetative yard debris in plastic bags.
-Reduce tree limbs/trunks to “no longer” than 4’ in length.
-Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris around mailboxes, water meters, fire hydrants, next to fences, cars, telephone poles or under guide wires.
-Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris in the road.
-If you decide to perform your own cleanup and drive items to the landfill, you will be charged the normal prices.
-Storm related vegetative debris removed by contractors is not eligible for pick up.
-The debris pick up includes residential properties only. It does not include commercial and business properties.
