Indian River County does not qualify for storm debris pick-up reimbursement from Hurricane Ian. It’s been the case for the past two years.
However, the Indian River County Commission voted to waive the tipping fees at the landfill for the next two weeks.
“Understanding the burden associated with cleaning up after a storm event, the County Commission voted today, October 4, 2022, to waive the tipping fees at the County Landfill for two weeks beginning today to ease the burden of yard waste clean-up,” Kathy Copeland, Legislative Affairs and Communications Manager of Indian River County, said in a statement.
No tipping fees will be charged for county residents bringing yard waste to the landfill until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 19.
The County also has five Customer Convenience Centers that accept yard waste at no fee. The closest one to Sebastian is the Roseland Convenience Center, located at 7860 130th Street in Sebastian.
Waste Management would like to remind subscribers of the option to place yard debris at the curb for pick-up according to the standard specifications; less than 3″ in diameter, less than 50 pounds, and up to 4 cubic yards of vegetative debris.
All other residents living elsewhere than Sebastian are encouraged to contact their respective municipalities for updates on debris removal.
