Storm-related debris should be placed into 4 SEPARATE PILES in front of your property in the right-of-way at least 30 feet from fire hydrants.
- Vegetative Debris (limbs, leaves, branches, sea grass, etc.) DO NOT BAG!
- Construction and Demolition Materials (building materials, insulation, cardboard, concrete, shingles, etc.)
- Metal (appliances)
- Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics (oil, bleach toilet cleaner, televisions, computers, etc.)
