 Vegetation & Debris Collection Update

 

Wellington contractors have cleared the Village’s roadways of Hurricane Irma debris and have begun making multiple passes through neighborhoods to continue picking up storm-generated debris. Your patience is necessary and greatly appreciated as we systematically collect storm debris.

Residents should place storm-generated debris on the public right-of-way, the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, utility pole, or easement. Make sure the debris pile is clear of storm drains and any obstacles including mail boxes, utility poles, vehicles, water meter vault, fire hydrant, or any other above-ground utility.

PHASE 1 – First Pass: Wellington has contracted with a private debris removal companies to assist with hurricane recovery. Crews have already cleared our major streets and thoroughfares of vegetative debris. Wellington debris removal contractors are collecting storm-generated debris in neighborhoods throughout the Village. The contractors will make multiple passes through Village neighborhoods to collect hurricane debris, so neighbors will have more than one opportunity to place hurricane debris out for collection. We thank our neighbors for their patience as we work together to get Wellington back to normal.   

 PHASE 2 – Second Pass: In 3-4 weeks, crews will begin removal of non-vegetative hurricane debris (i.e. fences, shingles, screens, roofing materials, etc.) along with any vegetative debris not collected during the first phase.

Debris Pickup Schedule


Wellington continues its recovery efforts with Public Works crews working around the clock to clear debris from our roads and public-rights-of-way in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
