CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- The city of Cape Coral has completed its final pass of Hurricane Irma debris removal, after removing approximately 375,000 cubic yards of debris.

According to the city, canal cleanup will continue into January, with more than 38,000 cubic yards of debris being removed from canals.

Any new debris placed curbside must be prepared in accordance with the normal Waste Pro pick-up guidelines.

The public debris site, located near Pine Island Road and Andalusia Boulevard, is now open to the public, seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for free mulch. Cape Coral residency is not required. This is a self-serve location.

If hurricane debris that was placed curbside prior to the beginning of the second pass (November 13) has not been picked up, please contact the 311 call center or email 311@capecoral.net.

For additional information, including Waste Pro pick-up guidelines and directions to the public site for free mulch, please refer to the City’s Post Irma Information page at www.capecoral.net.
