Storm Debris Pickup
Because we experienced a named storm, the Palmetto Dunes POA will be providing Hurricane Dorian-related vegetative debris pickup service. Our standard weekly debris pickup policy/service is on hold until further notice so we are able to address the storm debris within the community.
The PDPOA will make two passes for vegetative storm debris pickup:
- The first pickup will begin Wednesday, September 11.
- The second pickup will begin Wednesday, September 18.
In order for us to remove your storm debris, it must adhere to the following:
- Only disaster-related residential debris will be picked up. Commercial properties shall be responsible for their own debris.
- Because clean-up vehicles will not leave the roadway, all debris must be placed in the right-of-way for removal. It cannot be placed on asphalt; it cannot block the roadway or pathway.
- Only woody, vegetative debris is permitted for pickup in Palmetto Dunes. (No household trash, no construction materials, etc.) The PDPOA will not pick up non-vegetative debris.
- Debris should not be placed over utility boxes, water meters, fire hydrants, storm drains, or around mailboxes. Doing so could delay or prevent calls for service.
- Large trunks and limbs must be cut into manageable sizes (under 5′). Standing stumps must be cut down and ground.
- Debris must be left in natural, loose piles on the ground – NOT in bins or bags of any type.
- Villa and condominium owners should contact your regime management companies regarding storm debris pickup. The PDPOA will also be contacting them on your behalf.
- For single-family homeowners, debris piles must remain on your property. You may not place debris on neighboring properties – even vacant lots. Unauthorized dumping could result in a citation and fines. If you see any illegal dumping occurring, contact Security immediately at 843-785-1120
If your debris does not meet the above regulations, the PDPOA will leave the debris and you as the homeowner will be responsible for contracting the removal independently.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work toward restoring our community!
This Saturday, September 7, Palmetto Dunes will allow contractors access for storm-related clean-up work from 7am-7pm.
Please be aware that the lagoon levels are still very low. We will be working to get them back to normal over the next 2-4 days.
There may be possible blockages and trees down in the lagoon from the storm. Be careful navigating the lagoon, and if you see any blockage, please let us know by calling 843-785-1109.
Please contact Monica, our ARB Manager, for expedited tree removal permits by calling 843-785-1109 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
