City of Delray Beach and Waste Management pull together for debris removal
DELRAY BEACH, FL, October 30, 2017 – Monday, October 30, Waste Management officially resumed vegetative collection in addition to the normal bulk and garbage schedule serving the citizens of Delray Beach, as our Storm Debris Vendor’s contract came to an end Sunday, October 29, 2017.
As a reminder, all vegetation, tree limbs and cuttings must be less than six feet long and piles no more than 50 pounds. The Waste Management contract stipulates no more than a maximum of six cubic yards of vegetation per household. Each pass will collect an amount of vegetation the size of a large refrigerator.

Garbage, vegetation and bulk items should be placed curbside away from fire hydrants, mailboxes or utility poles. Items cannot be collected under utility wires.
Due to the amount of debris in certain areas, we are asking residents to be patient if all of their debris is not collected at one time. Any remaining debris will be picked up by Waste Management during scheduled collection days until the debris is cleared.
City workers have partnered with Waste Management to monitor the progress and assist in collecting remaining storm debris along our Right-of-Ways. Weather permitting; all hurricane related debris is expected to be removed within 45 days. The health and safety of our citizens continue to be the City’s priority.
