Solid Waste Management
Hurricane Irma Debris Removal Information
The collection of all hurricane land debris placed along roads in Monroe County was completed on Feb. 11.
More than 2.5 million cubic yards of storm debris and more than 20,000 destroyed large appliances created by Cat. 4 Hurricane Irma were collected by County, state and municipal contractors.
Monroe County homeowners or renters still can bring their hurricane debris to the County's three transfer stations free of charge. This includes white goods, construction debris and yard waste. But this free disposal for residents will not last much longer, so now is the time to do so.
REMINDER: It now is illegal to put hurricane debris along any roads in the Florida Keys.
Solid Waste, Yard Waste & Recycling Collection
All regular collection schedules for recycling, garbage (solid waste) and yard waste have resumed in unincorporated Monroe County.
All hazardous waste and electronic waste items should be taken to any of the County’s three transfer stations. At this time, hazardous waste collection is accepted during all transfer station hours, which are Monday - Saturday, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
