Sunday is the last day for people to put their debris on the curb.

You should also note that all drop-off sites are for residents only, so no contractors or businesses are allowed to use them.

Imagine filling up concrete mixers 90,000 times with storm debris left behind by Hurricane Ian. That’s exactly how much debris Collier County has picked up since Hurricane Ian’s landfall in September.

Storm-related debris includes any that poses a threat to the life, safety, and health of the public, including vegetative waste blown around by the storm.

Also, it includes any plumbing, wood, fencing, flooring, furniture, carpet, or wallboard that had to be removed from the home due to flooding or other damage.

Storm-related yard waste must be kept separate from other items placed out for collection.

Any storm debris already placed on the curb will continue to be collected.
