Winter Park officials say that pickup crews will begin their final pass to collect bagged and loose, containerized debris throughout the city.
The final pass begins on Wednesday, October 26 and will continue for the coming two to three weeks, according to city officials.
Residents are required to place all vegetative debris and construction or demolition materials on the curb. Officials are advising against placing debris near or on trees, poles, hydrants, meters or other structures.
Additionally, residents are asked to avoid placing debris in the street or blocking storm drains, manhole covers, or gutters.
Authorities say that any green debris placed on top of hurricane debris will result in a pile not being picked up.
“Green debris will contaminate the debris piles and disqualify that volume from FEMA reimbursement,” reads a statement from Winter Park officials. No furniture will be picked up during the final pass. Residents seeking to dispose of furniture must arrange for a special Waste Pro bulk pickup, or may dispose of furniture during the Fall Cleanup next month.
Any debris left after the last pass must be bagged, bundled or containerized for pick up on a regular yard waste day. County officials say that limited resources, following FEMA protocol for reimbursement, and long wait times at the landfills are still impacting their debris collection time.
