Hurricane Irma: Sanibel & Captiva Islands Vegetative Debris Cleanup
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.
GENERAL DEBRIS NOTES
- Vegetative Waste debris removal is scheduled to operate 7 days a week, 7 am to 5pm until the task is done
- Until the removal of the vegetative debris is completed, users are to refrain from utilizing any of the City’s Shared Use Paths where debris is on the path. Co-mingling of pedestrians, bicyclists, runners & heavy equipment is not safe and is to be avoided for the safety of all parties.
- If you have containerized, bagged or bundled vegetative waste it will be collected by our regular horticulture hauler on your regular garbage and recycling collection day. All other vegetative waste generated by the Hurricane is to be placed at the side of the road.
- THE VEGETATION WASTE NEED NOT BE BUNDLED. DO NOT PLACE THE VEGETATIVE WASTE NEXT TO OR OVER A FIRE HYDRANT OR UTILITY BOX SUCH AS YOUR WATER METER.
- We are finalizing plans to provide free mulch to the community. Details will be announced soon.
- We will make our best effort to post our productivity reports at the end of each day.Please do NOT approach the operators on the heavy equipment. It is dangerous for you and the operator and it slows down our mission. If you have questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at Public Works 239-472-6397 or Sanibel City Hall 239-472-3700.
- Numerous “sweeps” will be made through each neighborhood over at least the next month.
