Debris Removal Reminder to Gated Community Associations

In light of recent of Hurricane Irma developments the City of Deerfield Beach would like to remind those gated community associations who have signed Debris Removal agreements to make sure that all debris, collected after the storm, is moved to the curb area for pickup.

Please note the City Code as a reminder regarding removal of disaster debris:

Section 30-32

(g) Disaster-generated debris from residential property. 

(1) Responsibility. Residential property owners are responsible for the collection and removal of disaster-generated debris from their property, except to the extent the city is responsible for removal of disaster-generated debris from private rights-of-way as provided in section 30-32(e) above. 

(2) Piling requirement. As provided in this article, the city may remove disaster-generated debris collected from residential property. Residential property owners desiring the city to remove disaster-generated debris shall collect and locate in piles all disaster-generated debris as required by this section before the city’s last pass for removal of disaster-generated debris. Disaster-generated debris piles put out for removal after the city makes its last pass will not be removed by the city. 

(3) Segregation requirement. Residential property owners must segregate structural debris piles from vegetative debris piles, and these piles must be segregated from household waste. Household waste shall be bagged and placed in garbage cans. Structural debris and vegetative debris shall not be bagged, except that loose vegetative debris may be placed in large plastic bags. 

(4) Placement of piles. Residential property owners shall place disaster debris piles: 

(i) in front of their residence in the swale area immediately adjacent to the edge of the public or private roadway; and 

(ii) in such a manner as to allow ingress and egress to all residential properties. 

Residential property owners may combine their several piles of segregated disaster-generated debris into larger piles to accomplish this requirement.
