Cleaning Up After The Storm

AFTER THE STORM – Hurricane Dorian

Please separate storm debris into these categories:

HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE

Perishable items, such as food and normal household waste, will be collected by your regular garbage

service provider. This type of garbage will have priority service. Service may be interrupted due to road closures. Normal recycling collection will resume as soon as possible, but all other services have priority.

YARD DEBRIS

All yard waste must be placed on the right of way. To increase recycling of leaves, plants and small branches, these items should be contained in a waste can. Palm fronds and limbs should be stacked. Tree limbs must be less than four feet long, 12 inches across or 60 pounds. Larger tree sections/limbs may be collected as expanded service after a declared disaster.

CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS BULK ITEMS

Storm damaged bulk items, such as large furniture and materials relating to building construction, may be collected as an extension of service. Construction debris is not included in normal collection service.

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

Separated household hazardous waste is accepted at the Tomoka Landfill in Port Orange and the West Volusia Transfer Station in DeLand, free for Volusia County residents during normal work day hours. Household cleaners, old oil-based paint cans, fuels, fertilizers, solvents and cleaners must be separated from your regular garbage and debris because they have specific disposal requirements. Please contact your local government agency or Volusia County’s Solid Waste Division for information.
