Pasco County Not Accepting Fresh Curbside Vegetation
Five out of 16 debris pick-up zones have been completed
The Pasco County Solid Waste Department and its contractors have completed Hurricane Irma-related debris pick-up in five out of sixteen Pasco County debris removal zones, and in an effort to continue making progress are not picking up new, green vegetation.
Pasco County is receiving complaints about fresh piles of vegetation accumulating in zones where pickup has been completed. Pasco County Solid Waste does not ordinarily pick up any yard debris. Debris removal is being provided as a service to residents affected by Hurricane Irma.
Residents can also drop off storm debris at the following locations, Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.:
- East Pasco Transfer Station, 9626 Handcart Rd, Dade City
- West Pasco Resource Recovery, 14606 Hays Rd, Spring Hill
Fees for storm debris are waived until further notice; however, residents will be charged normal disposal fees for freshly-cut yard waste.
Residents can track the Hurricane Irma-related storm debris removal progress with an interactive map available on the Pasco County website: www.pascocountyfl.net or by clicking on this link: http://arcg.is/2wSHdN5. As of Sunday, October 15, 2017, Pasco County crews have collected nearly 46,000 cubic yards of storm debris.
