Solid Waste and Debris Removal Information | Community

Waste Management will resume garbage and recycling collections on Monday,  October 3, 2022.  

The City contracts with Ashbritt to pick up hurricane debris. A survey of all the debris will be done  on Monday, October 3rd. The pick-up date will be determined after the survey is completed. All  debris must be sorted into categories: 

  • VEGETATIVE DEBRIS: All residents should place vegetative debris in a SEPARATE pile along  the curb within the Right-of-Way, and not in the roadway. DO NOT stack debris below  overhead wires. Low hanging power lines and communication lines pose threats to the  trucks/equipment that will be collecting debris. DO NOT stack debris around fire hydrants, communication pedestals (Comcast and Century Link boxes, etc.), mailboxes, water meter  boxes, or any other object that could be damaged by heavy equipment collecting debris.  DO NOT mix storm debris. Please keep vegetative piles separate from all other debris that  may be placed in the Right-of-Way. DO NOT place vegetative debris in plastic bags or any  other containers. (All debris should be stacked in “loose” piles along the Right-of-Way)  
  • CONSTRUCTION & DEMOLITION DEBRIS (C&D): All residents should place construction &  demolition (C&D) debris in a SEPARATE pile along the curb within the Right-of-Way, and not  in the roadway. DO NOT mix storm debris. Please keep C&D debris piles separate from all  other debris that may be placed within the Right-of-Way. DO NOT mix household garbage  with C&D debris. DO NOT include materials that can be considered hazardous within these  piles.  
  • HAZARDOUS WASTE: Items such as propane tanks, paint, oils, lubricants, etc. should be in a  separate pile.  
  • APPLIANCES & WHITE GOODS (REFRIGERATORS, DISHWASHERS, ETC.): All residents should  place appliances and white goods in a SEPARATE pile along the curb within the Right-of-Way, and not in the roadway. DO NOT mix storm debris. Please keep appliances separate  from all other debris that may be placed within the Right-of-Way. PLEASE remove all  contents from appliances before placing in the Right-of-Way. Spoiled food items should be  bagged and placed out for regular garbage collection.  
  • ELECTRONIC WASTE: Computers, radios, and television sets should be placed in a separate  pile from appliances.  
  • COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS: Please DO NOT place any horticulture debris, C&D material, or  white goods within commercial front load dumpsters. ALL storm related debris should be  placed in the right-of-way as requested above.
