City’s Solid Waste services delayed

TRASH COLLECTION Alert

Yard debris pick-up temporarily suspended


On Monday, May 2, the City of St. Augustine Solid Waste Division experienced delays in residential and some commercial trash service due to unforeseen staff shortages as well as equipment malfunctions.  The City is asking residents that normally have trash service on Monday to leave their trash bin at the curb if it did not get serviced on Monday.  Solid Waste will collect on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, trash that was missed on Monday.

“We pride ourselves on impeccable service and have been able to provide uninterrupted services even while we have seen our neighboring communities struggle,” commented Utilities Director Todd Grant.  “However, we are not immune to those same challenges of equipment problems and workforce reliability.”

For residents with scheduled collection on Tuesdays, if trash is not collected, the city is asking that trash bins be left at the curb for collection on Wednesday, May 4, 2022.  In order to catch-up on missed trash collection and not fall further behind, yard debris will not be collected on Wednesday, May 4.

The city appreciates the patience and understanding from trash and recycling customers and will resume routine collections when equipment and personnel are back in service and available.

Questions may be directed to Todd Grant, Utilities Director, at 904.315.8499, or via email
