Disaster Assistance Frequently Asked Questions
Understanding FEMA Individual and Public Assistance
Garbage, yard and debris collection
The City of Daytona Beach will resume regular garbage and recycling service Monday, Oct. 3. Trucks will run all routes unless road conditions prevent access. Waste Pro will collect bagged and containerized yard waste Wednesday as scheduled. Other storm-related/bulk debris will be picked up at a later date to be announced. Debris should be placed at the curb and not in the streets or blocking sidewalks. Please separate vegetative debris (tree limbs and yard waste) from building/construction materials (carpet, furniture, fencing, drywall and shingles).
Hiring a contractor
Residents should be extra careful when hiring unknown contractors. Residents should be especially alert for door-to-door solicitors who promise to speed up the permit process or ask for large cash deposits or advance payments in full. Look first to licensed local contractors who have performed well in the past. If they cannot help you, ask them to recommend another reputable contractor. Most contractors in the building industry are honest, but disasters attract scam artists. Residents should hire contractors who are licensed by the state and/or the county. If a contractor is not properly licensed, the homeowner could be sued if he or she is injured on the job. Most homeowners’ insurance policies will not pay a claim if the homeowner has contracted with an unlicensed individual. Additional tips from Volusia County Government to hire a contractor are available here.
It is important to limit nonessential use of water during the storm to help prevent backups and overflows. Nonessential use includes washing clothes and dishes and prolonged showers. The city’s water treatment plants are fully staffed; however, heavy rainfall can inundate the system, and in the event of power outages, lift stations will also be without power or running at a limited capacity. Lift stations help move wastewater through the sewer system to water treatment facilities. Once power is restored to your home, please continue to limit water use for a few extra days as city crews begin to assess impacts to the water and wastewater system.
