Hurricane season preparations can help minimize property damage and make our communities safer. Since hurricane season starts June 1, now is the time to complete major vegetation trimming. Once a storm threatens, it’s too late to trim trees.
To ensure your yard is as prepared as possible:
Residents living within city boundaries should call their local municipality for their bulk collection guidelines. Check the SWA website for municipal contact information»
If contracting lawn care services for major vegetation trimming, make sure contractors include the price of debris removal as part of their service. Debris from major cutting or tree removal will need to be transported to an SWA facility, and there will be a fee for this disposal.Last hurricane season, Hurricane Irma left almost 3 million cubic yards of vegetative debris on the ground. It took three months and cost more than $30 million to collect and dispose of it all.Further Hurricane-Related Resources:
