Residents in private communities will finally see some relief from the mounds of debris after the city commission voted to send removal crews to pick up after Hurricane Irma.

Isaac Bachar said mounds of debris is stacked up in front of his neighbors property inside of the gated community of Tuscany in Heron Bay.

“I know it’s been a struggle for cities,” he said.”We welcome the cleanup and can’t wait.”

The City of Coral Springs will begin collecting debris in private communities starting on Monday, September 25, but first, the communities must have both a current Right-of-Entry and Exhibit-A agreement on file with the city before debris crews will enter the community. 

The debris removal process will take a minimum of 2-3 weeks, and some communities may not see debris removal activity for a while. Vegetative debris must be placed curbside separate from other trash, garbage, and bulk waste and away from fire hydrants, storm drains, mailboxes, and cars, to enable pick-up with a grapple truck. The city pick-up is for vegetative debris only.
