Post Date:11/06/2017 4:51 PM

OCALA, Fla. (Nov. 6, 2017) – The City of Ocala and its FEMA-approved debris management contractor, Crowder-Gulf, are continuing to collect hurricane debris in all four quadrants of the City limits following Hurricane Irma. The third and final pass for debris collection began Wednesday, Nov. 1 and will be completed by Saturday, Nov. 18. Regularly scheduled collection for yard waste, junk and debris is expected to resume Monday, Nov. 20 for City of Ocala residents. 

After Saturday, Nov. 18, residents should require tree contractors who remove or trim any trees on their property to remove the associated tree debris. Debris left by a tree contractor may result in residents being charged by the City of Ocala Residential Sanitation Division for collection. If residents’ debris has been collected and debris still remains out of reach, it should be placed closer to the road in order to be collected. Debris piles should not contain any wood, fencing or other non-vegetative items.

For more information, please contact the City of Ocala at 352-629-2489.
