Manatee County sets storm debris placement deadline for uncollected areas

  • Oct 24, 2017

MANATEE COUNTY, FL (Oct. 24, 2017) — Solid waste officials today announced the deadline for debris placement in uncollected areas of unincorporated Manatee County. In areas where debris contractors have not yet passed through, debris must be placed at the curb for collection no later than October 30.

“Most residents have had their storm-related debris at the curb for some time, but there are still some that are working to get those last fallen trees cut up and moved to the curb,” said Manatee County Utilities Director Mike Gore. “This lets them know how much time they have left.”
 
With more trucks on the road, collection is speeding up and a deadline will ensure that debris is out when the pass is made. Residents may take their yard waste and vegetative storm debris to the Lena Road Landfill free of charge through Sunday, October 29. Tipping fees will be reinstated on Monday, October 30.

 

Separate trucks will be utilized to collect debris on private roads, so collection may be at a different time than the adjacent public roads. Updates and additional information is available at www.mymanatee.org/utilities. Residents may also call (941) 792-8811 with any questions.
