Debris Removal Continues in Citrus County

Debris removal continues within Citrus County at a very manageable pace. There are approximately thirty collection vehicles working daily in Citrus County.

County Roads: The contractor is finishing efforts in the southeast quadrant of the County and will be moving into the northeast and southwest quadrants this week. This includes the neighborhoods north of Inverness including Beverly Hills, Citrus Springs (northeast), along with Old Homosassa (southwest), and then on to Sugarmill Woods.

Private Roads: County crews are continuing their efforts of debris collection on private roads in Citrus County. The southeast quadrant debris collection has been completed. Crews are currently working the northeast quadrant and the southwest quadrant. Private road debris collection is moving along rapidly with an estimated completion near the end of October.

To facilitate the cleanup, we are asking all citizens to follow these guidelines:

-There will be ONE residential debris pick up, which will take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

-Only storm generated natural vegetation will be collected.

-Please bring all storm generated natural vegetation to the curbside as quickly as possible.

-Do not place vegetative yard debris in plastic bags.

-Reduce tree limbs/trunks to “no longer” than 4’ in length.

-Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris around mailboxes, water meters, fire hydrants, next to fences, cars, telephone poles or under guide wires.

-Do not pile storm generated vegetative debris in the road.

-If you decide to perform your own cleanup and drive items to the landfill, you will be charged the normal prices.

-Storm related vegetative debris removed by contractors is not eligible for pick up.

-The debris pick up includes residential properties only. It does not include commercial and business properties.
