Leon County solid waste pick up resumes today

Leon County solid waste pick up resumes today

As a result, some areas that normally have their trash picked up on Wednesday, for example, won't have a pickup until Thursday. If you have a larger county-provided container for automated garbage collection, you may use that as well.

- Yard debris will NOT be picked up.

Most important Storm debris should be placed at the curb and not in the roadway.

Friday, September 15: Normal schedules for trash and recycling will resume.

Waste Pro will begin picking up regular solid waste Tuesday in accordance with the normal service day schedule. There will be no make-up days for recycling collection. The Federal Emergency Management Agency requires documentation of the volume and type of debris collected to reimburse the county for storm clean up. It just needs to be placed on the curb with care to avoid the street, fire hydrants, and light poles.

Brevard County's Central Disposal Facility in Cocoa, the Sarno Road Landfill and Transfer Station in Melbourne and Mockingbird Way Mulching Facility in Titusville are open from 7:30 a.m.to 5:30 p.m. daily for people who choose to deliver their debris to a permitted disposal facility themselves.

Yard waste (trees, limbs, brush, etc.) does not need to be bundled and should be put on the curb. Spoiled contents should be placed in garbage for pickup. Garbage will be collected on a normal schedule beginning Monday, September 18. Place it in piles that can easily be managed by debris collection personnel with a claw truck. Recycling collection services have been suspended.

Waste Management is not involved in hurricane debris pickup.
