Post Date:09/08/2017 4:00 PM

Dear Cutler Bay Residents,

Our Team has been working diligently to keep you informed prior to and during the events of Hurricane Irma. Below please find the latest recovery updates for today, September 12, 2017:

Town Hall Offices will be closed on September 13, 2017. Due to the current state of our telecommunications, phone lines and email are still down, please monitor your eNotifications and the Town's website for up to date information.

Miami-Dade County's curfew has been lifted as of today.

The Solid Waste Management Department has resumed residential and commercial garbage services today. Crews will service all carts on the curbsides, unless the roadways are impassible. Service will take time, so residents are asked to be patient. No requests for missed services are to be opened. Residents whose garbage collection day was Monday, September 11th will be serviced on Wednesday, September 13th. This will serve as the make-up day for Monday's suspended service.

Residents who no longer have a garbage cart should order a replacement via 311.

Curbside recycling service will be suspended until Monday, September 18th.

Residents should begin to place their hurricane debris at the curbside. Debris collection by the County's Hurricane Irma recovery contractors will begin at a later date, to be announced. Residents are advised not to mix trash with other household items such as furniture, carpeting, etc. Residents are also advised not place trash on the right-of-ways of private property or on vacant lots. 

Bulky waste scheduling remains suspended until further notice. No calls or online/phone app scheduling is available to the public at this time. Crews servicing bulky pick-ups are currently addressing curbside trash piles in an effort to keep roadways clear.

Thirteen (13) Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers are open for operation and will observe extended operating hours from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM, until further notice. Service area residents can drop off household trash, yard waste and small amounts of hurricane debris. Guidelines regarding truck and trailer sizes will continue to be observed.

The Resources Recovery Facility will remain closed until further notice.

While residents' homes may have open windows and doors, residents who are partaking in outdoor cleanup activities are advised to take precautions to prevent mosquito bites and mosquito breeding. EPA-approved repellants containing DEET, picaridin, lemon or eucalyptus oil and IR3535 are considered effective.

Homes being powered by generators are advised to exercise caution by not powering their home with the generator inside the structure. For additional Generator Safety Information, please click here.
