Storm Debris Pickup Starts for Unincorporated Pinellas
Curbside pickup of storm debris begins Monday for homes in the unincorporated area of Pinellas County.
PINELLAS COUNTY – As county public works crews finish clearing storm debris from roads, a second phase of recovery will begin Monday (Sept. 18) to collect residential storm debris in unincorporated Pinellas.
Residents will be able to search their address and view where contractors are working in zones throughout unincorporated Pinellas County by going to pinellascounty.org and clicking on the debris collection routes map link.
As identified on the map, the first collections will be in North County zones INON03; INON05; INON06; and South County zones INSE07; INSE08, INSE09. The contractors will work for two weeks in the initial zones and then move on to other zones for another two weeks, until all zones have been covered. Then, contractors will go back through zones on a rotating basis until all debris is picked up.
Residents should place their debris in sorted piles at the public right-of-way for curbside collection by debris crews. Residents are also advised to not place debris in plastic bags. Debris will be collected and taken to a temporary storage site to ultimately be recycled or disposed of. Residents should not bring debris to county debris management sites.
Residents are asked to sort debris by item type and place in separate piles. These are the specific items that can be moved to the curbside for collection:
Construction and demolition debris
· Building material including roof shingles and siding
· Fallen tree branches and logs. Leaves will not be picked up.
Residents are asked to take the following steps to make the debris removal process easier:
· Sort debris by type and place in separate piles.
· Do not stack debris against trees, poles, fire hydrants and storm drains.
· Do not place debris on sidewalks or farther back than 10 feet beyond the curb.
Municipal residents can contact their municipality about the availability of debris pickup in their area. Residents who are uncertain if their property is located within unincorporated Pinellas or within a municipality, should go to pinellascounty.org.
For information, contact Pinellas County Public Works at (727) 464-8900, or go to pinellascounty.org.
