Just got word from Waste Management that they WILL pick up debris that is bagged. "Yes we will chip away on the yard waste, without putting the regular trash at risk or not finishing since that is our main focus due to smell issues. Thanks for everyone’s patience as we get through this event." The normal day for pick up in Belleair Bluffs is Friday.

The National Weather Service is forecasting Hurricane Irma to make landfall in Florida by Sunday. While the storm’s exact path and potential impact on Pinellas County is not yet certain, evacuations are planned to ensure citizens have adequate time to leave those areas that could be threatened. Ways to find your evacuation zone: • Visit www.pinellascounty.org/knowyourzone • Download the Ready Pinellas app, or the Pinellas County Doing Things mobile app. • Call (727) 453-3150 and enter your 10-digit home phone number (must be from a landline) Residents can also call the Citizen Information Center at (727) 464-4333 to get preparedness information including how to look up their evacuation zone. Spanish-speaking call-takers are available. The CIC will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today. Shelter options: Residents ordered to evacuate should consider the following shelter options: • Stay with family members or at a hotel in a non-evacuation zone • Stay at an emergency shelter; information will be provided at www.pinellascounty.org • If you have special needs, be sure your caregiver begins to implement your plan. If you have no other options, register for special needs transportation by calling (727) 464-4333 or by contacting the local fire department. You may also travel to a special needs shelter on your own. • If you have a pet and will need to stay at a pet-friendly shelter, you must register ahead of time. Visit www.pinellascounty.org/emergency/petpreparedness.htm When planning to evacuate, residents are advised to consider evacuating a short distance (tens of miles, not hundreds of miles) to avoid the impacts of potential storm surge, significant rainfall flooding, and unsafe structures (mobile homes). Consider staying in safer structures that have window and door protection for hurricanes. If your plans are to evacuate out of the area, please be aware of the uncertainty of the track of Hurricane Irma and that all of Florida is presently in the threat area. When evacuating, people should safely use real time traffic apps on their smart phones, such as Florida 511, to find the best route if roads become congested. Barrier island residents who have registered for Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Access Permit are reminded to bring the permit with them when evacuating.
