BREVARD COUNTY SOLID WASTE – Public Service Announcement 10/10/16
Brevard County Solid Waste Management Department is entering into the clean-up phase for the debris generated by Hurricane Matthew. Based on windshield surveys conducted by County personnel it is estimated that Matthew generated up to 300,000 cubic yards of debris, the majority of which is green waste, i.e. yard waste, trees, branches, etc., along with some construction debris, i.e. fences, docks, roofing shingles.
We would like to share the following information to help residents prepare their storm debris for timely pickup and disposal.
As of Monday October 10, 2016, your franchised collector Waste Management, Inc., will resume their normal collection schedule for household garbage, recycling, and containerized yard waste. The County's disaster debris contractors will begin collection of your loose piles of yard waste and construction debris on Tuesday October 11, 2016. The actual routes and days of this collection do not follow a set schedule; however, all such debris set out in the right-of-way will be collected. These contractors will be making two sweeps through the County at least one week apart to pick up this debris.
Important things to remember about storm debris collection:
- Keep your yard waste and construction debris in separate piles at your curb
- Do not use bags for yard waste (it makes it impossible to recycle/mulch)
- Cut up trees and branches to 4' foot lengths if possible
- The County's Central Disposal Facility in Cocoa, the Sarno Road Landfill in Melbourne, and Mockingbird Way Mulching Facility in Titusville are open from 7:30 to 5:30 Monday through Saturday if you choose to deliver your debris to a permitted disposal facility yourself. These facilities will also be open Sunday October 16, 2016.
- White goods (refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, etc) will be picked up by Waste Management. Please call them to schedule special pickup.
