Hernando County Emergency Management has coordinated with the Solid Waste Department to begin collecting debris caused from Hurricane Irma. Debris removal pick-ups will start on Monday September 18th, 2017. There will be two sweeps performed throughout the County which could take a few weeks to complete. Residents must separate vegetative debris (tree limbs, brush, etc) from other construction/demolition debris and place in front of their property along the roadway. Do not place debris in the roadway, in front of mail boxes or fire hydrants.
Hernando County Government’s Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor and inform our community about Hurricane Irma. We will continue to keep you updated before, during and after the storm. Visit the following web and social media sites for more information.
