Press Release NoticeMANATEE COUNTY, FL (September 30, 2022) – Real-time damage estimates performed by Manatee County staff show more than 37 million dollars in storm damage—so far.

Crews have been deployed to gather data on residential and commercial impacts from Ian, and in just two days, they have identified $30,906,109 in residential damages and $6,027,287 in damages to commercial properties. This total will undoubtedly rise as more data is collected and clean-up progresses.

If you are looking to get a start on your post-Ian clearing, there’s good news: The Manatee County Landfill at Lena Road will offer expanded weekend hours (8 AM to 5 PM), and extended operating times scheduled next week (8 AM to 6 PM), to allow residents to get rid of their debris.

Additionally, there will be changes in solid waste collection next week to help facilitate more debris clearing. This includes the suspension of recycling pick-ups until further notice, to allow crews to concentrate on trash and debris hauling.
