Martin County begins Hurricane Matthew debris collection

Martin County begins Hurricane Matthew debris collection and removal Thursday

Martin County will begin collecting vegetative debris in all residential areas, including private and gated communities, beginning Thursday, October 13.

Residents are asked to separate vegetative and construction demolition debris when placing debris along the road right-of ways, and maintain a 5-foot clear zone around utility equipment. Do not place debris near mailboxes, structures, utility boxes, or other infrastructure that could be damaged by the collection equipment. The debris should be placed within the road right of way, but should not block roadways, sidewalks, drainage facilities, or create a sight distance hazard.

Debris collection is expected to last two to four weeks. Normal household waste garbage service resumed this week.
