A couple of reminders for residents:

  • Residents should consolidate vegetative debris piles as much as possible to expedite collection.
  • Remember to keep emergency storm demolition debris separate from vegetative debris.
  • Those who have emergency storm demolition debris are asked to call for a pick up (pick-up will be schedule) at 352-338-3233.

Alachua County asks for residents to be patient, remember to be kind and thank customer service folks, drivers and contractors, they are working hard to help us all recover from this disaster event. They have homes and families too and many are away from their loved ones to work for our community.
