Insure your debris is removed:  Residents interested in a prompt and thorough Hurricane Debris removal should place their debris curbside and per FEMA* regulation separate debris into specific piles:  Vegetative Hurricane Debris:  logs, plants, tree branches and/or Non-Vegetative Hurricane Debris: fences, roof material, screening, etc. 
*FEMA requires residents to separate storm hurricane debris from vegetative storm debris (trees, branches etc.), placing them in separate piles, because the debris is taken to different disposal sites.
