Vegetative storm debris from Hurricane Dorian
The County of Volusia did not receive an emergency declaration from FEMA for debris removal. Unincorporated residents are to follow standard residential yard waste collection guidelines:

  • Yard waste pick up is once a week. The weekly collection allowance is the equivalent of eight 32-gallon containers, not to exceed (4) four cubic yards.
  • Yard waste means vegetative organic matter resulting from the routine landscaping maintenance of the grounds of a developed residential property. Collection includes: grass, leaves, palm fronds, yard rakings, shrub and tree trimmings. Please contain all small debris (rakings, grass clippings, acorns, pine cones, spanish moss, etc.) either in plastic bags or in 32-gallon garbage containers. Containers and bags must weigh less than 60 pounds apiece.
  • Palm fronds and limbs need to be neatly stacked (no need for bundles). Limbs may not exceed 4 ft. in length or 1 ft. in diameter and must weigh less than 60 pounds apiece.
  • Never place yard waste in the container provided by the county for garbage collection or in your recycle bins.
