MONROE COUNTY, FL – Monroe County’s contractor is completing the final pass on Big Pine Key and is expecting to be completed within a day or two. This will mark the end of collection on land of more than 2.5 million cubic yards of Hurricane Irma debris and more than 20,000 destroyed large appliances in the Florida Keys.
All that remains on land is primarily collection along the Avenues of Big Pine Key. All other areas of the Keys are complete, with the exception of a few small locations.
REMINDER: It is now illegal to put hurricane debris along all roads in the Keys.
Residents and business owners can put what fits into your regular solid waste or yard waste bins for collection by your regular haulers. You also can call your regular haulers for special pickup, which may come with a fee.
Monroe County residents still can bring their own residential hurricane debris to one of the County’s three transfer stations for free disposal. But this won’t last indefinitely, so now is a good time to finish up any remaining hurricane debris removal around your property.
For contractors and landscapers, the fee for disposal at County transfer stations always has been $123.50 per ton.
