Residential recycling collection to resume next week

The City of St. Augustine Solid Waste Division will delay residential recycling collection until next Thursday or Friday, October 20 or 21, to focus on Hurricane Ian debris and household waste collections.

In the interim, residents may divert recyclables by using our free drop off recycling locations (listed below):

Residents are urged to place yard debris curbside to allow collection by city crews. Debris should be placed no more than 10 feet away from the curb, so that it can be reached by pickup crews and claw trucks.  Do not place debris under low hanging limbs, guide wires, and electrical and communication lines, or in the street where it can obstruct vehicular traffic, fire hydrants, mailboxes, and utility boxes. To expedite the recovery process, it is imperative to keep the roadway and access to the debris piles clear. If possible, avoid parking on the street, so debris removal trucks will have direct access.

As a reminder, it is imperative to separate yard waste, appliances, and  construction/demolition debris when setting them curbside for pickup. For more information, visit here.

Questions about waste pickup and additional information may be directed to the city's Solid Waste Division at 904.825.1049, Monday-Friday, during normal business hours. Media inquiries should be directed to Melissa Wissel, Communications Director, at 904.293.3307 or via email.
