NO FURTHER DUMPING OF DEBRIS
Final debris pickups are being completed for Lower Matecumbe Key neighborhoods - the final area of Islamorada to be cleared of hurricane debris. All areas of Islamorada had multiple pickups of hurricane debris during the removal work that began on September 16th. Islamorada property owners were provided notice in advance of the final debris pickups for each area of the Village.
Property owners will need to make individual arrangements for the removal of any materials that were not collected as part of the hurricane debris removal.
HOW TO ARRANGE FOR REMOVAL:
- Vegetative waste can be placed in containers (up to 32 gallons) or bundled (branches cut to 4 feet in length). Up to six containers and/or bundles can be placed at the roadside weekly for pickup. Reminder: each container or bundle may not weigh more than 50 pounds. Pickups will be on the regular schedule (with some current delays) and no call to request pickup is needed for containerized/bundled vegetative waste removal.
- Household furniture, carpet tied in bundles of less than six-feet in length, and household appliances will require a special pickup. No fees apply for household waste removal. Pickups can be requested by contacting Advanced Disposal at 305-853-3433 or IslamoradaFL@advanceddisposal.com.
- Construction & demolition waste such as doors, drywall and wood will require a special pickup and fees will apply. Fees of $29.87 per cubic yard apply for removal of such waste; a representative will go onsite to issue an estimate to the customer. Pickups can be requested by contacting Advanced Disposal at 305-853-3433 or IslamoradaFL@advanceddisposal.com.
REMAINING DEBRIS ON US-1:
The Village is moving forward to approve a new contract to remove the piles of debris on the Overseas Highway/US-1 that were not picked up by the FDOT contractor. It is anticipated that removal of the remaining debris on the U-1 may begin the last week of November.
NO ADDITIONAL DEBRIS MAY BE DUMPED ON US-1. Such dumping is a felony and the no-dumping regulations are being enforced.
