Volusia schedules last pickup for storm debris

Volusia County is preparing for the second and final pass for storm-related debris collection on county maintained roads resulting from Hurricane Matthew. The second and final pass will begin Monday, Nov. 28, and does not include private roads.

Volusia County residents should have all storm-related debris out on the public right-of-way by Nov. 28 to ensure it is collected. The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. Debris should not cover storm drains or be placed near fire hydrants, power lines and mailboxes.

Residents must continue to separate vegetative debris from construction and demolition debris.

Bagged debris will not be collected and should not be placed in the right-of-way with debris piles.

Hazardous debris, such as paint and tires, will not be picked up. It is the responsibility of the resident to dispose of hazardous waste items. For information on the disposal of hazardous waste items, visit http://www.volusia.org/services/public-works/solid-waste-and-recycling/disposing-of-household-hazardous-waste.stml.

Residents can call 386-871-2147 if they have questions about the removal of storm-related debris or visit volusia.org/pin.
