Hurricane Nicole Debris Pickup (UPDATE):
Due to debris washed up on the beach and dunes from Hurricane Nicole, the City is picking up debris readily accessible on the Beach. The material must be cut into lengths no larger than 5’ and placed by the property owners on an easily accessible flat portion of the beach seaward of the vegetated dune. The City’s beach cleaning contractor will picking up the piles through Friday, December 16, 2022.
The City of Vero Beach has a debris removal contractor picking up VEGETATIVE YARD DEBRIS ONLY throughout the City. The contractor began work on Monday, November 28th with two trucks on the Barrier Island. One truck began at the northernmost limits of the City and one truck began at the southernmost limits. Those trucks should finish their pass of the barrier island this week and move onto the mainland. The contractor is hauling directly to the County landfill, which slows the process down somewhat, as well as having to work around private landscapers and maintenance vehicles obstructing passage on some of the narrow streets. The height of the trucks will also necessitate an alternative method of removal on some of our canopy streets, with smaller equipment brought in to push the debris to the intersections to be picked up with the claws. A third truck is also being brought in to start working on the mainland streets. Please be patient as we work through the City.
The yard debris is being picked up by a special truck with a claw, so residents should follow these guidelines:
The City of Vero Beach Solid Waste division will continue with normal scheduled garbage and yard debris services.
