Residents have a host of available options for debris clean up

RELEASE DATE: February 5, 2007

TAVARES — Lake County residents affected by the devastating tornados of Feb. 2 have a multitude of options available to them for removing debris from their property.
 
Lake County’s and the Town of Lady Lake’s contracted debris-management firms are diligently working to remove construction and vegetative debris from the County- and Town-owned right-of-ways. Residents are encouraged to move debris to these cleared right-of-ways in three separate piles: vegetative, construction and household trash.
 
If property owners, who may still be located in the community or who are currently residing outside the County, are having difficulties moving debris from their private property to the curb, they can request free assistance by calling 1-866-540-2325 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week. Operators at this toll-free hotline will forward these requests to a consortium of non-profit organizations, which have agreed to provide aid to the tornado-ravaged areas of the Town of Lady Lake and unincorporated Lake County.
 
This hotline is also available for residents to report other debris-related complaints and issues. The hotline is available for Lake County residents ONLY. Emergency Management officials appreciate the offered assistance from independent debris haulers, but at this time no additional contracted companies are needed.
 
Residents who wish to move debris entirely from their property can transport debris to a variety of locations across Lake County. The following locations are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and accept vegetative debris, household hazardous waste and household trash: 
  • Central Facility, 13130 County Landfill Road, Tavares (also accepts construction debris)
  • Lady Lake Residential Drop-off, 1200 Jackson St.
  • Paisley Residential Drop-off, 44225 Spring Creek Road
  • Pine Lakes Residential Drop-off, 43029 County Road 44, DeLand 
For more information or directions to any of these facilities, call the Lake County Citizens Information Line at (352) 343-9732 or log on to www.lakecountyfl.gov.
