Herando County Government has contracted with an additional hauler to help expedite the Hurricane Irma debris removal process.
Starting the week of October 9, Tag Grinding will begin collecting storm debris on the west side of the Suncoast Parkway.
Nearly 19,000 cubic yards of debris have already been picked-up by the initial hauler, Grubbs Emergency Services, since the process began on Monday, September 18.
Grubbs will continue the debris removal process on the east side of the Suncoast Parkway. The haulers are scheduled to conduct two sweeps countywide, which will still take a few weeks to complete.
Residents must separate vegetative debris from other construction/demolition debris and place it in front of their property along the roadway. Do not place debris in the roadway, in front of mail boxes or fire hydrants.
Hernando County Government’s Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor and inform our community about storm impacts. Visit the following web and social media sites for more information.
