Pickups within unincorporated Citrus County (not within the city limits of Crystal River or Inverness) are ongoing and will continue until all storm debris is accounted for.
Residents are asked to stage debris (not including everyday household trash) in the right-of-way for pick up, separating vegetative debris, construction & demolition debris, appliances, and electronics. Avoid stacking or leaning – placing debris near or on trees, poles, or other structures makes removal difficult. For more information about debris pickup, call 352-527-5477.
Below you'll find a video explaining the process, a guide to how to sort debris and a link to our Debris Collection Dashboard where you can monitor pick-up in your area:
