Hurricane Irma Debris Collection to Begin

BREVARD COUNTY, FL. -- Solid Waste Management will begin Hurricane Irma debris collection as trucks arrive this weekend. The collection will cover all unincorporated areas of Brevard County and the following municipalities that have joined Brevard County Government in an interlocal agreement: Indialantic, Indian Harbor Beach, Grant-Valkaria, City of Cocoa, Melbourne Beach, Satellite Beach, West Melbourne, and Melbourne Village.

As you prepare your debris, please follow these guidelines:
  • Debris must be set out on the public right-of-way to be collected; do not place storm debris in roadway.
  • Separate your debris. This is extremely important for efficient collection!
  • Keep all household garbage and recycling in the carts provided by Waste Management;
  • Containerize loose vegetative debris (leaves, grass clippings, pine needles or shrubbery cuttings)
  • Cut up trees and limbs into 4’ lengths
  • Neatly stack construction and demolition debris (drywall, roof shingles, side, carpet, fencing and docks).
  • Call Waste Management for collection of white goods (appliances: refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, etc)
  • Never place any debris beside utility poles or transformers, under power lines, on top of water meters, on storm drains, by fire hydrants, near vehicles, next to mailboxes or fences.
  • Hidden electrical hazards can injure or kill collection personnel.
  • Do not place debris on other people’s property.

Contractors hired by a homeowner for tree trimming, fence repair/replacement, or construction are responsible for hauling away all yard waste, fencing and construction materials.

Residents may also bring their yard waste and construction/demolition materials to one of the County. Disposal locations:
  • Mockingbird Way Mulching Facility, 3600 South Street, Titusville, FL
  • Central Disposal Facility, 2250 Adamson Rd, Cocoa, FL
