FDOT makes final round for hurricane debris pick up

The Board of County Commissioners held an emergency meeting on Wednesday, December 6, to pass a resolution acknowledging that the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is undertaking a final round to remove hurricane related debris from the State road right-of-ways in Hendry County.

FDOT started making their last pass to remove hurricane related debris on the State road right-of-ways the first week of December and will finish collecting the debris by December 22. Residents and landowners are not to place any additional debris in the State road right-of-ways.

There is no cost for the County as a result of this resolution as FDOT is paying for this final round of hurricane related debris removal.

Residents who live along the State road right-of-ways need to ensure that future placement of any and all horticultural waste within the State road right-of-ways meet the requirements of the County’s waste hauler for curbside pickup and disposal.

Unincorporated Hendry County Residents with questions regarding the requirements for collection and disposal of horticultural waste by the County’s waste hauler are asked to call Special Districts at 863-675-5252.
