Final sweeps for hurricane debris began Oct. 29 in Key Largo, Tavernier, Conch Key, Duck Key, Layton and between Mile Marker 5 on Stock Island and Mile Marker 15 on Bay Point.

Oct. 28 was the deadline to put hurricane debris on the County right of way for guaranteed free pickup. Final sweeps will take several days to complete.

All hurricane debris put out by the Oct. 28 deadline in those areas will be collected. Residents who put hurricane debris on the County right of way (curbside) after that deadline – and it was not collected – must contact the solid waste company in their area to collect it. Fees might be charged. To find out who your solid waste company is, and for contact numbers, go to the county website: http://www.monroecounty-fl.gov/index.aspx?NID=69.

At this time, residential hurricane debris can be taken to any of the County’s three transfer stations for free disposal by County residential customers.

Illegal Dumping

If you are a resident who lives in Key Largo, Tavernier, Conch Key, Duck Key, Layton and Between MM 5 and MM 15, do not dump hurricane debris along U.S. 1 now. It could be considered illegal dumping.

It is illegal to dump hurricane debris on vacant lots that you don’t own.

Collection Continues in Hardest Hit Areas: MM 16 to MM 40

In the hardest hit areas of the Keys, between Mile Marker 16 and Mile Marker 40, collections are continuing as quickly as possible in those neighborhoods. No dates for final sweeps have been set yet. To date, more than 445,000 cubic yards have been collected in this area.

Regular garbage and yard waste collection also is taking place.

At this time, residential hurricane debris in this area also can be taken to any of the County’s three transfer stations for free disposal by County residential customers.
