Storm Debris Removal Finally Set to End in Orange County

Orange County announced the removal of hurricane-generated debris will finally be completed on December 16, 2022. While it may be surprising, some residents have not received service yet. But Orange County government said that all areas that still have storm debris at the curb will be addressed before this date.




According to local officials, there will be a multiple-step verification process to ensure that every public road has been cleared of roadside hurricane debris.

Debris removal efforts will continue in areas that Orange County has assessed and identified as highly impacted by Hurricane Ian and Tropical Storm Nicole.

To date, contractors have collected approximately 270,000 cubic yards of debris, accounting for some 90% of the debris generated by both storms.

After December 16th, yard waste must be prepared for collection in accordance with Orange County Solid Waste guidelines. Residents may continue to check the status of the county-wide debris removal process by visiting the interactive Debris Removal Status map:

This is separate from the City of Orlando. Seminole County, Florida anticipates all debris to be collected by mid-to-late January. The final Hurricane Ian vegetative debris pile collection will occur December 12-22, 2022 for Unincorporated Seminole County Solid Waste customers.
