NAPLES, Fla. -- Final efforts to pick up storm debris from Hurricane Irma are being made in Collier County, and December 15th is now the deadline to get that debris out on the curb.

Storm debris includes:

  • Any trees, tree limbs or shrubs fallen by the hurricane.
  • Fencing, flooring, furniture, carpet, wallboard, etc., that had to be removed from the home due to flooding or other structural damage.

According to Collier County Government, contractors have already removed over 3,263,000 cubic yards of hurricane debris in the wake of the September 10th storm.

Storm-related yard waste must be kept separate from other items placed out for collection. Yard debris must not be green (freshly cut), and no green yard waste material can be combined with hurricane-related yard debris, otherwise the debris pile will not comply with Federal Emergency Management Agency guidelines for collection.

Please ensure piles of yard waste are away from mailboxes, water meters, backflow preventions devices, utility poles and other objects that could be damaged by the large debris removal equipment.

After December 15, residents must prepare yard waste as they normally would for curbside collection.

For those residents who wish to self-haul yard debris after December 15th, the Temporary Residential Drop-off locations will remain open through December 22nd, sites will officially close after December 22nd. Please note these sites are for storm-related yard waste only; no construction debris, garbage, hazardous materials, or appliances.
