Median and Right-of-Way Trash Removal Program


Median and Row Trash Removal - Truck Picking up Waste


Medians and public right-of-ways have trash removed on an as needed basis.  One two-man crew uses a grapple (mechanical claw) truck for removing large items, and another two-man crew picks up smaller items while dispatched from a pick-up truck.  Items called into the Citizen’s Action Center and Code Enforcement requests account for the majority of work dispatched.  Trash on private property is not picked up, unless it is relocated to the public right-of-way.  That would be the private property owner’s responsibility to remove, and they are typically notified via Code Enforcement.  Should you encounter debris in the medians, streets, or sides of the road in need of removal, please contact the 311 Call Center formerly the Citizen’s Action Center by dialing 311 or (239) 574-0425.
