DEADLINE TO PUT HURRICANE DEBRIS ON COUNTY RIGHTS OF WAY FROM MM 16 to 28 IS SUNDAY, JAN. 14

MONROE COUNTY, FL – The last day to put eligible hurricane debris on County and private roads in the Mile Marker 16 to 28 area (Lower Sugarloaf Key through Middle Torch Key) is Sunday, Jan. 14.

Final pass in this area will begin Monday, Jan. 15 and continue for several weeks until the debris has been collected. Leading up to the final pass start date, collection will continue in this area.

County public works crews will also perform a final pass on private roads in this area, moving any additional debris from the private road to the closest County right of way for collection by the County’s contractor. It is not necessary for residents on private roads to call to request a pick up.

In the very hardest hit areas of Little Torch Key, Big Pine Key and No Name Key (MM 28 to MM 40), a final date to put debris on County and private roads has not been set. Collections are continuing in these areas.

It remains illegal to put debris anywhere along U.S. 1 in the Keys – this includes between MM 16 and 40.

NOTE: Residents should follow all County hurricane debris removal requirements:

  • Separate into five groups as best you can: vegetative debris, seaweed, household appliances, non-vegetative debris and household hazardous waste, which includes paints, cleaners, etc. (It is recommended you bring your household hazardous waste to one of the County’s three transfer stations).
  • Hurricane debris needs to be separate from regular household trash. Contents of refrigerators should be thrown out in regular trash. This gets picked up by regular garbage collection.
  • Debris also should be kept away from fire hydrants and utility poles.
  • Avoid putting debris in plastic garbage bags on the right of way. If debris is put in garbage bags, it should be put in regular garbage bins for collection. Piles that contain any garbage bags may not be picked up.

Things that are not eligible for free pick up by hurricane debris contractor include: cars, trucks, motor homes, motor cycles, trailers, boats or other watercraft and car parts like tires.
