Interactive map schedule: Martin County’s hurricane debris collection

 

The map depicts the number of remaining Hurricane Irma debris collection cycles remaining by geographic zone. The blue shading indicates that debris is actively being collected in this zone. The red shading indicates two remaining cycles, yellow indicates one remaining cycle, and green indicates that there are no remaining cycles and your waste collection will revert to the normal hauler.   Note that this pertains to waste generated by Hurricane Irma.  Normal trash pickup is currently occurring on your regularly scheduled days.  Yard waste generated through normal weekly maintenance should be removed by the landscaping firm pursuant to regular guidelines and not added to Hurricane debris piles.

Martin County has begun collecting debris generated by Hurricane Irma. Multiple passes of hurricane debris collection will occur in all residential areas of the unincorporated County, including private and gated communities. Note that this pertains only to waste generated by Hurricane Irma.

The debris collection process will begin with vegetative debris, then transition to include Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris on future passes as the project progresses. Please separate your debris piles into vegetation and C&D. Mixed piles will not be collected. Likewise, do not place vegetative debris in plastic garbage bags because they are then considered mixed debris and cannot be collected under this contract.

The debris should be staged within the road right of way, taking care not to place the debris on or near storm drains, meter boxes, or other infrastructure. The debris should be placed near the road, but not on the pavement surface. The debris will be loaded with large equipment, so look up when placing debris at the curbside, and refrain from placing it under low hanging powerlines or tree canopies.

View the “Debris Completion Map” below for the current status of disaster debris collection by geographic zone. Hauling vehicles will continue to arrive to support this project, and the map will be adjusted as resource volumes stabilize: http://mcgov.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=8467bc5868ba4d59bada7a7ef3849792

A debris hotline (772-463-3277) has been established to support this program, and will have a Customer Service representative available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays starting on Monday, September 18, 2017. Please NOTE: There will be multiple passes in each zone, so there is no need to call the hotline to let us know that you have debris that needs to be collected.

Normal trash pickup is currently occurring on your regularly scheduled days. Yard waste generated through normal weekly maintenance should be removed by the landscaping firm or stockpiled separately pursuant to regular vegetative debris guidelines and not added to Hurricane debris piles.
