The city's Solid Waste Department requests residents begin placing their brush and debris left from Hurricane Hanna curbside for collection by city crews.

There will be no citations or fines assessed during this hurricane response period. The citywide removal of debris will begin on Monday, Aug. 3, and continue until completion which is estimated to be no longer than three weeks.

Residents should separate their brush and debris into two piles. The first should be for clean brush including trees, limbs, palm fronds and other brush. This debris will be turned into mulch at the J.C. Elliott Transfer Station.

The second pile will be for wooden planks, fencing, roof shingles or other such debris caused by the hurricane. The city asks that the brush and debris piles do not block sidewalks, thruways or drainage ditches.
