Residents must clean up dead fish from flooding

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) -- FEMA and Florida State damage inspection teams are still on the job, looking at damage in areas affected by last week's historic flooding.

For residents whose roads are still too flooded for garbage pickup, the Solid Waste Authority is setting up two drop-off locations for garbage and recycling Monday through Wednesday.

The drop-off locations are at the Acreage Community Park at 67th Street and 140th Avenue North. The second drop-off is at Temple Park on Temple Boulevard west of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.

If there are dead fish outside your property it will be your responsibility to clean it up.

Palm Beach County has contracted a private vendor to collect dead fish from canals.

The fish can be taken to any of the two Solid Waste Authority pickup location. Fish must be double-bagged or single-bagged in a container weighing no more than 50 pounds.
