SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - Orange and Seminole counties will begin curbside pick-up services for large storm debris left by Hurricane Ian on Thursday for residents.
In Seminole County, officials say you must sort yard trash (vegetation) from debris (construction materials from homes, etc.). As you sort debris, do not put it by fire hydrants, on sidewalks, or around power lines. Also, if you do not know how to use a chainsaw, now is not the time to learn. Please practice chainsaw safety.
Orange County says crews will make multiple passes to collect debris on Thursday, with the main focus on vegetative debris. Residents should do the following to prepare:
- Residents must put debris on the curb at the edge of your property
- Separate items to be collected by vegetative debris, C&D debris, appliances, and electronics
- Do not stack or lean debris near or on trees, poles, fire hydrants, or other structures
- Do not block the roadway or storm drains
Debris may be collected in multiple phases.
