County to Begin Curbside Debris Collection on May 17

Leon County will soon begin collecting curbside vegetative disaster debris for the unincorporated area of the county. Storm-related debris collection will begin Friday, May 17, with a second pass in late May or early June.

Collection will occur on both public and private roads in the unincorporated area.

As citizens begin their cleanup efforts, it is essential to remember the following tips:

  • All debris for collection should be placed curbside between the sidewalk or property line and the curb.
  • Keep vegetative debris loose and unbagged at the curb.
  • Only vegetative disaster storm debris will be collected.
  • 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, recycling, and smaller yard debris as usual on their normally scheduled days.
  • Do not stack or lean debris against sprinkler heads, meters, poles, trees, backflows, and other structures.
For information on how best to organize debris and how to safely place materials at the curb, please review the included debris disposal guide.

To further support the needs of our community, Leon County will offer free-of-charge yard and debris drop-off for all Leon County citizens at both the Solid Waste Management Facility and all the Rural Waste Service Centers until further notice.

The Leon County Solid Waste Management Facility, located at 7550 Apalachee Parkway, will be open to all County residents from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Leon County Rural Waste Service Centers will also remain open every day 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
