COMMINGLED:

Commingled collections have resumed in the City of Hollywood. Waste Pro crews are currently operating within the City and are collecting commingled items as part of the storm debris recovery process. Due to the excessive amount of debris, commingled collections are not following the regular weekly collection schedule found under normal conditions. Residents choosing to place commingled items out for collection may do so, however those items could remain curbside for an extended period of time while crews continue to work on additional collections. All commingled items must be placed curbside and away from existing storm debris piles. While still on a modified schedule, commingled collection are taking place in the alley for those customers who have alleyways. The regular, weekly commingled collection service is anticipated to resume in the very near future.     

STORM DEBRIS:

Crews are making the final pass through the City to collect all remaining Hurricane Irma storm debris. The deadline to place Hurricane Irma storm debris curbside has passed.   

PARKING:

Please do not park your vehicle near your debris pile. Crews operating heavy equipment need space to maneuver during the removal process. Please park your vehicle away from the pile to allow for easier access.
