PLEASE DO NOT MIX PILES
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – There will be 25 debris collection trucks on the road today, Wednesday, Oct. 12, for debris collection from Hurricane Matthew.
Areas of concentration are Micco (Little Hollywood), Melbourne (Lake Washington) and Cocoa (Canaveral Groves and Friday Road).
In addition to the Mockingbird Way Mulch Facility in Titusville, Central Disposal Facility in Cocoa and Sarno Road Landfill in Melbourne, Brevard County Solid Waste will be opening two additional temporary debris storage sites on Thursday to help manage the waste.
One site will be located in Valkaria and the other site has not been determined at this time.
Several cities have activated an Interlocal Agreement with Brevard County to have the County’s disaster debris contractors pick up debris within their city limits.
The County’s disaster debris contractors began collection of loose piles of yard waste and construction debris set out at the curb on Tuesday. PLEASE DO NOT MIX PILES. They will operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (during daylight hours) until further notice.
The actual routes and days of this collection do not follow a set schedule, however, all such debris set out in the right-of-way will be collected. These contractors will be making two sweeps through the County at least one week apart to pick up this debris.
Please contact your individual city or regular collector (Waste Management or Waste Pro) if you have questions regarding normal garbage, recycling and containerized yard waste collection service. These services should be operating on their normal schedule.
FDOT will be clearing right-of-ways on all state maintained roads.
