Preparing for Hurricane Season June 8, 2020 Now that hurricane season is underway, it is important to know what you should and should not do as you prepare your yard or clean up after a storm. Given that the global COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing, it is more critical than ever to properly dispose of yard waste to protect yourself and sanitation workers. Collection guidelines for yard waste varies by location. Before placing your yard waste out for collection, check with your local city, town, county or parish on the requirements for information like size and weight limits and tips on how to place your yard waste out. These limits exist to keep Waste Pro drivers on schedule and ensure all homes along their routes are serviced. It is important to remember your garbage cart/can, lawn furniture, and any other outdoor objects that could possibly become a projectile should be brought inside or to a safe location. If you are in an area that is impacted by a storm, please check with your local government for information about storm debris collection; in many locations, storm debris collection is contracted through FEMA, not the regular waste collection provider. From tracking weather events to making sure our equipment is working properly, we are taking steps to prepare for any storm that might form this hurricane season. We are meeting with emergency management organizations across our 11-state footprint to review procedures and making sure we are ready to serve you.
