The City of Orlando wants you to know that they haven’t forgotten you or your curb full of hurricane debris.
City crews are currently wrapping up debris collection in residential neighborhoods and as of November 22, they expect to resume normal weekly operations and pickups. Residents who still have heaps of plant debris at their curbs, or household items that were damaged by Hurricane Ian and/or Hurricane Nicole, should report their pickup needs to the Solid Waste team (politely) at 407-246-2314 or [email protected].
As a reminder, residents should do the following to help pickups flow smoothly:
- Place all debris at the curb.
- Separate construction debris like fencing and household items from yard debris like limbs and branches – don’t put it all together.
- Don’t block your debris pile with your car or truck if you’re parking on the street. They can’t get your rubbish if you’re in front of it.
- Bag loose debris like leaves and small branches. They’re not going around raking up your random piles.
The City of Orlando has been a bit behind on yard waste pickup since this summer when it became public that they were lacking the trained staff needed to operate the city claw trucks. More on that HERE.
