HURRICANE IRMA RECOVERY!
The Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea sustained only minimal damage, mostly
fallen trees and some downed power lines. Please exercise caution while
cleaning up your property as most hurricane-related injuries and deaths
occur after the storm has passed. Town crews are already clearing debris
from roads and public plazes. Please be patient as there is a lot of
material that must be collected over time.
Be extremely careful using a generator,
which produce poisonous carbon monoxide. Even with your windows
closed, carbon monoxide can seep into your home. Feeling lightheaded and
tired is a sign you may be exposed. Some smoke alarms will go off in
response to the presence of carbon monoxide gas.
DO NOT place any tree limbs or other hurricane debris in the road. All streets must be kept clear. All trash carts and debris should be placed curbside.
HURRICANE DEBRIS PICK-UP
The Town has contracted with Crowder Gulf to collect hurricane-related debris on the public right-of-way. The work has started and will take several days to complete. DO NOT place any household appliances, exercise bikes or other non-hurricane-related debris out for collection. It will not be picked up. Bulk items not related to the hurricane should be placed curbside during your regular bulk pick-up. A second Town-wide hurricane debris may be scheduled later.
SEPARATE VEGETATION FROM OTHER DEBRIS
Please keep all vegetation (tree limbs, logs, leaves, palm fronds, etc.) separate from other hurricane debris (fences, roof tiles, etc.). If you do place leaves in a plastic bag, keep the bags separate from the vegetation pile.
