Important Info about residential, yard, and storm damage waste

The City has a company under contract to pick up your discarded materials, but if waste is not put curbside correctly, they will not be able to collect it.

Please follow these simple rules to make it easier for everyone to do their jobs: 

  • Yard Waste and Construction and Demolition items must be kept separated!    Form two piles with enough distance between them that the truck operator can easily pick the correct pile. 
    Pressure Treated wood from a deck or dock must be kept separated also!
  • Stack your material in the front yard right-of-way, up to but not into, the street.  Your pile can come into your yard as far as the front edge of green water meter box, but no further.
  • If your pile is under a power line, don’t stack it any higher than 6 feet.
  • Any hired private contractors MUST park their trucks in your driveway and not on the street to allow the FEMA debris trucks room to do their job.  If they can’t reach your pile, it will NOT be picked up.
  • City Sanitation trucks are running extra schedules, but often cannot get down the street because of personal vehicles parked on the road.  Park your vehicles in your driveways and yards to allow trucks to pass!
  • YARD WASTE

It’s not necessary to cut tree limbs into smaller pieces.  Very small items and loose leaves will most likely be left behind after the grapple truck picks up your pile.  It may be necessary to rake up more than once afterward and place in cans for pickup by the City at a later date.   

  • CONSTRUCTION & DEMOLITION (C&D)

This includes any flooring (tile, wood, laminate, carpeting and padding); furniture, mattresses, appliances, etc. that you had to remove from your home.  It also includes TVs and computers. 

NO TIRES!!!  If there are tires in your pile, none of the pile will be picked up.

 

  • HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE (HHHW)

The City cannot legally handle your household hazardous waste.  Residents may take it to the County Landfill FREE OF CHARGE.  The landfill is at 1700 Old Kings Road, 1.8 miles south of SR 100.  They are open Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 3:30 PM.  Phone:  (386) 517-2075.

HHHW includes items such as paint cans (oil and water based), aerosol containers, lubricants, cleaners, oils, solvents, devices with mercury, rechargeable batteries, adhesives, pool maintenance chemicals, etc.

Up to 10 tires will be accepted, but they CANNOT be on rims.  Place spill-able items inside an open cardboard or plastic box and secure them so they don’t tip over. 

Electronics such as TVs and computers may be placed with the C&D pile.

SCHEDULE

Contracted debris removal is scheduled to begin on Thursday, September 21.  Trucks will run from dawn to dusk, seven days a week.  We will know more about which streets will be picked up and when as we get closer to the date and will try to keep the public informed via our website and radio.  Tune in to Surf 97.3 at 7 AM, Noon, and 7 PM to learn when you can expect a pickup.
