Jacksonville, FL – As you start deal with cleaning up the damage done by Irma, we’re getting a better idea of what trash and debris pick-up will look like on the First Coast.
Jacksonville’s routine waste collection is delayed by one day for the week of September 10th. Collections normally scheduled for Monday, September 11th, were picked up Tuesday, September 12th.
For storm debris, there are two options. You can prepare debris for collection with your normal weekly yard waste, by putting up to five cubic yards- about 30 garbage bags- in bags or containers. As a second option, you can pile debris on the curb, leaving at least three feet of space from utility boxes, poles, mailboxes, fire hydrants, and other obstacles, and avoiding placing piles under trees. Crews will be working sunrise to sunset, seven days a week, to use large mechanical arms to scoop up this debris. There will be multiple passes made by the clearing crews, but there is no specific schedule for when specific neighborhoods will be addressed.
