Hurricane Irma updates: trash, water, burning restrictions

The city is asking residents to conserve water.

The city of Ormond Beach has announced the first priority following Hurricane Irma is to clear and open all the roadways for passenger and emergency vehicles. 

Trash collection

Monday’s trash collection will occur on Tuesday, Sept. 12, and Tuesday’s collection will occur on Wednesday, Sept. 13. There will be no yard waste pickup on Wednesday. The regular collection schedule will resume on Thursday, Sept. 14.

Yard debris

Yard debris should be placed curbside for pickup but not in the roadways and not covering stormwater drains. Yard debris should not be in bags and should be separated from all other trash and construction materials. All construction debris must be kept separate from yard debris. According to the city, placing debris in the roadways will impact the storm cleanup as well as hinder emergency vehicle response. The city is also asking that residents do no remove fallen trees or limbs from roadways. Anyone needing a tree or limb removed can contact Central Dispatch at 386-248-1777. 

Water conservation

Hurricane Irma has caused widespread power outages throughout the Ormond Beach community reducing the city’s capability to pump and distribute water, according to city officials. As a precaution, the city is asking that all water customers conserve and minimize water usage until crews can restore necessary power. Minimizing water usage will help the city maintain reliable utility service to all customers by lessening the impacts on both water distribution and wastewater collection systems and resources. Residents are asked to call 386-676-3220 with any questions.

No open burning

Open burning of commercial waste, residential trash, garbage, lawn debris, clippings, trees or other debris on residential, commercial or industrial property is prohibited within the city, according to the city’s Code of Ordinances, Section 9.2.
