Wellington’s Village Council unanimously authorized sending debris removal crews into private and gated communities to pick-up vegetative debris associated with Hurricane Irma at its September 12, 2017 Council meeting. The Village began collecting debris in private communities starting on Thursday, September 21, 2017, following coordination with contractors.
Communities must have both a current Right-of-Entry and Exhibit-A agreement on file with the Village before debris crews will enter the community.
The debris removal process will take a minimum of 2-3 weeks, and some communities may not see debris removal activity for a while.
Residents should place vegetative debris curbside separate from other trash, garbage, and bulk waste. It should be placed away from fire hydrants, storm drains, mailboxes, and cars, to enable pick-up with a grapple truck. Do not block sidewalks or driveways.
For any hurricane debris removal questions, please call the Solid Waste Costumer Service, at 561-791-4003.
