York County will commence curbside hurricane debris pickups on Tuesday, Sept. 6.
Crews will be working throughout the county, so please have all yard vegetative debris ready and set out for curbside pickup on that date. It is expected to take crews over a week to service all the neighborhoods in the county.
When putting debris out for pickup, make sure that:
- Debris does not block the roadway.
- Debris is not near trees, poles, or other structures, or under power lines or over utility manholes, all of which make removal difficult.
- Debris is placed within 10 feet of the roadway. 
- Debris is not cut up into small pieces, but no larger than 24 inches in diameter and 10 feet in length, which makes removal difficult.
- Debris is separated by category: electronics, large appliances, hazardous waste, vegetative debris, construction debris and household garbage must not be mixed.
