FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEStorm Debris Removal Underway in Wellington
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 Monday, October 3, 2022, throughout the Village.
Residents are asked to separate 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.)
• Household hazardous waste (paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, pesticides, etc.); please be sure these materials are in a secured container and are not leaking in any way.
• Dirt/sediment (soil, sand, gravel, 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.
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.
Regular trash removal services in the community will continue as scheduled.
As another way to stay informed on the latest news and updates from the Village, residents are invited to sign up for Wellington information and updates at www.wellingtonfl.gov/
