Debris Collection in Unincorporated Leon County
Following a recent federal disaster declaration, Leon County will begin collecting curbside vegetative disaster debris for the unincorporated area. Storm-related debris collection began Tuesday, September 19, with a second pass during the first week in October.
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.
When possible, 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.
To further support the needs of our community, Leon County will offer free-of-charge yard debris collection for all Leon County citizens at both the Solid Waste Management Facility and all Rural Waste Service Centers.
The Solid Waste Management Facility, located at 7550 Apalachee Parkway, welcomes residents from Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Rural Waste Service Centers are open Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the following locations:
Woodville, 549 Henry Jones Road
Fort Braden, 248
5 East Joe Thomas Road
Miccosukee, 13051 Miccosukee Road
The County anticipates FEMA to provide full reimbursement for storm-related debris removal.
