Polk County Completes Hurricane Debris Collection
Published on Feb 3, 2023
As of Wednesday, February 1, the county had collected 1,107,668 total cubic yards of debris. Following Hurricane Irma, about 1.9 million cubic yards of debris was collected over 180 days.
Throughout the weekend, residents may report uncollected hurricane debris through the FYI Polk message service on the home page of the county’s website at www.polk-county.net. Beginning Monday, February 6, Polk County will return to pre-hurricane procedures for routine yard waste.
Once the county’s storm-debris collection program ends Sunday, the North Central Landfill will still accept debris; however, residents will need to self-haul debris and tipping fees at the Landfill will apply.
