Orange County GovernmentOrange County, Fla. – Orange County today announced that the removal of hurricane debris will be complete on December 16, 2022. All areas with storm debris at the curb will be serviced by this date. There will be a multiple-step verification process to ensure that every public road has been cleared of roadside hurricane debris.

Debris removal efforts will continue in areas that Orange County has assessed and identified as highly impacted by the Hurricane Ian and Tropical Storm Nicole. To date, contractors have collected approximately 270,000 cubic yards of debris, accounting for some 90percent of the debris generated by both storms.
