The County can only pick up solid waste and debris that is placed in public rights-of-way within the unincorporated areas of Leon County.

Due to the impact of Hurricane Irma, the County has included debris pick up on private roads in the Debris Management Plan.

Waste Pro yard waste collection will return to normal operations on Thursday, October 19.

Also, residents can still take their yard debris to the landfill and rural waste sites free of charge during normal hours of operation through Sunday, October 22.

Debris Collected as of Tuesday, October 17

Total: 35,550 cubic yards

Responsibility of Private Property Owners

Private property owners must assure that the placement of debris in County rights-of-way or on private roads for removal by the County satisfies the following:

  1. Separate debris into stacks or piles into the following categories: household garbage, recycling, appliances (as a safety precaution, remove all doors from appliances), hazardous household waste and electronic waste, bulky waste, construction and demolition debris. To the extent possible, 4’ – 6’ of space should be left between piles.
  2. Secure all household garbage in your trash container.  Any excess can be brought to a Rural Waste Center.
    Locations of the Rural Waste Center are: 
    Woodville at 549 Henry Jones Road
    Ft. Braden at 2485 E. Joe Thomas Road
    Miccosukee at 13051 Miccosukee Road
    Blount at 4363 Holder 
    Visit www.leoncountyfl.gov/solidwaste/ruralsites.asp for directions.
  3. The debris shall be neatly stacked, piled, or placed with its leading edge lying within the three-foot roadside shoulder area on either side of the travel lanes of the road, not blocking the roadway, traffic signs and signals, or storm drains.
  4. Do not place any debris under any power lines, on top of any water meters, or within three feet of any power poles, fire hydrants, vehicles, mailboxes, or fences.

Please remember that Leon County's FIRST priority will be to open streets and remove debris from the rights-of-way of major roadways, so that transportation corridors can resume functioning at capacity.
