Hernando County Emergency Management has coordinated with the Solid Waste Department to begin collecting debris caused from Hurricane Irma.
Debris removal pick-ups will start on Monday, September 18, 2017.
There will be two sweeps performed throughout the County which could take a few weeks to complete. Residents must separate vegetative debris (tree limbs, brush, etc.) from other construction/demolition debris and place in front of their property along the roadway.
Do not place debris in the roadway, in front of mail boxes or fire hydrants.
If you choose to dispose of your storm debris before Monday, please DO NOT take it to the convenience centers.
Convenience Centers cannot accommodate the weight and size of large storm debris and it will not be accepted.
You may dispose of it at the Northwest Solid Waste Facility (Main Landfill) located at 14450 Landfill Road in Brooksville. You may call (352) 754-4112 for more information. This location is open Monday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
