Garbage and Debris Collection (Post Hurricane Irma)

Garbage and Debris Collection

The City of Eustis continues to collect the vegetative storm debris left behind Hurricane Irma.  Due to the large volume of vegetative debris it has been difficult to estimate how long the collection process will take.   Please be patient with our contractor and Public Works department as they make their way around the city.  They are more than halfway through the first collection cycle and will continue to pick-up vegetative debris until they have circulated the entire city twice.   The full collection of storm debris will be completed within the next three weeks.

Residential Guidelines for Separating Garbage from Storm Debris at the Curb

It is important that storm debris remain separate from residential garbage and recycling.  Public Works and contractors will be collecting storm related vegetative debris and Waste Management employees will collect your household garbage and recycling.   Separating household waste from storm debris will allow for these services to pick-up the different categories of waste more quickly.    Piles of mixed debris WILL NOT be removed.   It is also important that all the debris is placed curbside as crews WILL NOT remove debris from private property.  

 Safety Guidelines:

  • Be sure the debris and waste containers are not blocking mailboxes, power lines, storm drains, or fire hydrants.
  • Keep roadways and sidewalks as clear as possible.
  • Avoid parking your car near debris piles and waste containers.
  • Keep children and pets away from debris piles and waste containers, and watch them carefully when heavy equipment is in the area.
  • Drive carefully when behind debris-loaded trucks.  Materials can fly out causing an accident or driving hazard.  Leave a safe distance between your vehicle and the truck.
