Leon County Extends Free-of-Charge Collection at County Facilities

As Leon County residents continue to clean up their properties following Hurricane Irma, Leon County has extended the free-of-charge period for both the Solid Waste Management Facility and the Rural Waste Service Centers. The facilities will be open their normal hours and remain free of charge through Sunday, September 24.

The Solid Waste Management Facility (7550 Apalachee Parkway) will be open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Rural Waste Service Centers will be open Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the following locations:

• Woodville, 549 Henry Jones Road
• Fort Braden, 2485 East Joe Thomas Road
• Miccosukee, 13051 Miccosukee Road

Curbside storm-related debris collection will begin this week and will continue until all storm-related debris is picked up.

As citizens continue their cleanup, please remember the following tips:

• all debris for collection should be placed curbside between the sidewalk or property line and the curb
• debris should be separated at the curb from vegetative, construction and demolition, appliances and white goods, electronics, and household hazardous waste
• be careful and safe when moving large, bulky storm-related debris to the curb
• debris removal trucks will not pick up household garbage; Waste Pro will continue to collect trash and recycling as usual
• do not stack or lean debris against sprinkler heads, meters, poles, trees, backflows, and other structures

For further information on how best to organize debris and how to safely place materials at the curb, please review the included debris disposal guide .
