MONROE COUNTY, FL – It is now illegal to dump hurricane debris anywhere along U.S. 1 in the Florida Keys or on any County road that has received a final pass for hurricane debris collection.
In unincorporated Monroe County, hurricane debris collection concluded in November on County roads from Stock Island (MM 4) to Baypoint (MM 15) and on County roads in Key Largo and Tavernier.
A final pass now is being conducted on Duck Key, and the contractor will proceed to Conch Key and the City of Layton shortly. No more debris should be put out on County roads or City roads in these areas.
Illegal dumping is a felony. Law enforcement is actively enforcing illegal dumping in the Keys.
If you have put debris in front of your property on County roads that already have received a final pass, the debris will not be picked up by hurricane debris contractors.
You can put this debris into your garbage cans or vegetative waste cans for regularly-scheduled pickup by the County’s solid waste contractors. Or you can take the debris to one of the County’s three transfer stations for free disposal for County residents. It is not free for landscapers, construction companies and other commercial entities.
Hours: 8 am. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
