Hurricane Irma Debris Removal begins Sept. 18 – Hernando

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 18th, 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.

Hernando County Government’s Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor and inform our community about Hurricane Irma. We will continue to keep you updated before, during and after the storm. Visit the following web and social media sites for more information.

  1. someone took small branches in trash can, but many on my block including myself have black trash bags filled
    with yard waste from storm. will the county or republic take this

    1. I am sure they will be taken. I would guess that your regular trash pickup will take black trash bags, as they are not certain to be yard debris to the trash hauler and we do not want the bags to go into the mulch that they make from the branches, etc. You can call the County Solid Waste division for a more definite answer, but I would wait until your regular trash pickup to see if they just take it then.
