Hurricane Debris Management

Remember to Clean & Cut

Get ahead and plan to trim your trees and clean out your garages, carports and storage areas throughout the month of June.Clean and Cut Program

Even though Sanitation Services will not provide extra bulk and vegetation pickup days this year, it is crucial that we prepare now and clean out our homes and properties, so we don’t overwhelm our sanitation systems.

Keep in mind: when disposing of household debris and even COVID-19 related items such as gloves and masks, please be as considerate and sanitary as possible and place your garbage in tight, closed bags to help keep our sanitation crews safe.

Visit Sanitation Services for more information about acceptable bulk and vegetation items.

Before The Storm

The City of Boca Raton strongly encourages all residents and businesses to do ALL major tree cutting/removal PRIOR to April 30. Hurricane Season is from June 1 - November 30.

  • Trees should be cut back from buildings and power lines.
    View Sustainable Tree Maintenance page for information on pruning & more.

  • Thin foliage so that wind can flow freely through branches and minimize the chances of being uprooted.

  • Clear your property of any items that could be a danger to you or your neighbors in hurricane-force winds, such as old lumber and broken lawn furniture. View Bulk Waste information and acceptable items.

  • Clean out any unwanted items in your garage/storage for disposal. You may need the space to store items during a storm.
