Hiring a Contractor to Remove Debris
If you hire a contractor to handle large tree debris or household damage, make sure the contractor knows he or she is required to take it to the proper landfill. Contractors are required by law to dispose of debris properly; they cannot place it in the right-of way.
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) asks residents of Volusia County to report waterway debris and abandoned vessels at maps.floridadisaster.org/debris. The DEP has resources and contractors available for waterway debris removal but is in need of direction on how to best place the resources based on the local needs and field conditions. Users can enter various types of debris, ranging from vessels to appliances. Address, county and contact information are required fields. A report from the data entered will be used to mobilize DEP resources for debris removal response.
