Daytona Beach has contracted with a private company for storm-related debris removal. The start date for collection is Monday, Oct. 10.
Vegetative debris will be collected first, followed by construction and demolition debris and then appliances.
Residents must sort debris into three separate piles for vegetative debris (leaves, branches and cut trees), construction and demolition debris (building materials, carpet, furniture, fences, drywall, etc.) and appliances (refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, stoves). Leaves and limbs should be loose and not be bagged or in containers. Piles not appropriately separated cannot be picked up. Electronics and household hazardous waste will not be collected. Those items can be disposed at the Tomoka Landfill free of charge.
Residents should bring storm debris to the public right of way, the area that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. Residents should not place debris in the road; this obstructs traffic, hinders cleanup and makes it difficult for emergency vehicles to pass. Keep debris away from drainage ditches, inlets, mailboxes and power lines. Do not cover storm drains and never block fire hydrants.
Regular garbage collection Standard trash pickup will continue as scheduled beginning Monday, Oct. 3. Regular bagged yard waste will be collected on Wednesday. Storm debris should not be placed with household garbage.
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.
