[ARCHIVED] Storm Debris Removal Underway in Wellington

vegetative debris on the curb

Recovery efforts are underway in response to Hurricane Ian’s effects on the Village of Wellington. Clearing and removing disaster debris is a major part of the recovery effort. Wellington will begin vegetative disaster debris collection and removal on the week of October 3, 2022.

Residents are asked to separate disaster debris as follows and place it in piles at the curb in the public right-of-way, not on private property:

Construction and demolition materials (building construction materials – wood, metal, drywall, shingles, etc., as well as building contents and personal property – furnishings, clothing, appliances, etc.)

Vegetative materials (trees, limbs, brush, leaves, etc.)

All debris must be placed in separate piles at the curb in the public right-of-way, as described above. It is the home/business owner’s responsibility to bring the debris to the curb and to properly separate it.

Your cooperation will make this debris removal operation proceed smoothly and ensure that the community recovers as quickly as possible.

We will provide updates as we work through the recovery process for removing disaster debris throughout the Village.

Download the GoWellington mobile app or use the online portal  to report unsafe debris situations (e.g., leaning trees, trees on houses, partially collapsed structures, etc.)

Please note that this operation is ONLY for disaster debris. Please do not attempt to place garbage or other household refuse with the disaster debris, as it will not be accepted.

Wellington will not pick up soil/ sediment or electronics, hazardous waste, and home chemicals. Electronics, hazardous waste, and home chemicals should be disposed of at a hazardous waste site. If not disposed of properly this waste can leak toxic elements that can be harmful to the environment and humans. To check for drop-off locations, please visit: Solid Waste Authority website or call 561-697-2700.

Hazardous Waste items include, but are not limited to:

  • Paint
  • Pool Chemicals, 
  • Household Cleaners, 
  • Propane Tanks, 
  • Fluorescent Light Bulbs
  • Used Motor Oil

Regular trash removal services in the community will continue as scheduled.
