The Federal Emergency Management Agency has a rule that states yard waste cannot be mixed with other storm debris for it to be collected. The city of Winter Garden is asking residents in the city limits and in unincorporated Orange County to follow the rule to expedite the Hurricane Ian cleanup process.
In response to Hurricane Ian, debris removal contractors began servicing neighborhoods to pick up storm-related debris Sunday, Oct. 9. Beginning Monday, Oct. 10, the contractor is working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week until all storm debris is picked up.
The city of Winter Garden has a Hurricane Ian recovery website page that is updated regularly: cwgdn.com/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=238.
