COLLECTION DIRECTIONS FOR SMALL RESIDUAL VEG DEBRIS

“We have been contacted by citizens who are among the majority of Sanibel residents who take great pride in their well-maintained properties & would like to complete the final re-dressing their berm immediately. We have made arrangements with our regular hauler to expedite you.

After the large claw trucks collect the large piles of vegetative waste from the berm in front of your home, business or institution any small or loose vegetation that is containerized, bagged or bundled by you or your landscaper will be collected by our regular horticulture waste hauler on your regular horticulture collection day. The City will have restoration crews following up after all the vegetative waste large & small is collected but we certainly want to accommodate those who do not want to wait to see the complete the final restoration of their berm themselves.
Thank you for your contribution to returning Sanibel to our pre-storm beauty.
