By Space Coast Daily // October 11, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The City of Palm Bay’s disaster debris removal contractor will begin debris removal on city maintained roads in response to Hurricane Matthew on October 17.
The City’s contractor is currently prioritizing debris removal based on areas where Hurricane Matthew has generated storm debris to the extent that these areas can be safely accessed to perform debris removal.
Residents of impacted areas are asked to place any storm-generated debris on the public right-of-way by Monday October 17th to ensure pickup.
The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement.
To ensure pick up please separate Hurricane Matthew debris as follows, and place sorted debris in piles at the curb in the public right-of-way:
• VEGETATIVE DEBRIS (whole trees, tree stumps, tree branches, tree trunks and other leafy material)
• CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS (damaged components of buildings and structures such lumber and wood, wall board, glass, metal, roofing materials, tile, furnishings, and fixtures)
• HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE (materials that are ignitable, reactive, toxic or corrosive such as paints, cleaners, pesticides, etc.)
• LARGE APPLIANCES (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, heat pumps, ovens, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers and water heaters)
• ELECTRONIC WASTE (computers, televisions, office electronic equipment, etc.)
Do not place debris near a water meter vault, fire hydrant or any other above-ground utility. Only sorted debris piles placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection until further notice.
