Tropical Storm Idalia Collection Schedule
NO YARDWASTE COLLECTION ON WEDNESDAY, 8/30
Per Waste Pro, Yard Waste Collection for Wednesday, August 30 has been cancelled.
Do not place your yard waste bins outside for Wednesday.
If you have yard waste that needs to be disposed of, please take it to a transfer station.
If landfills allow, Waste Pro will be in town Saturday to pick up yard waste. TBA if there will be any special bagging requirements.
KEEP STORM DRAINS CLEAR
Best practice for yard waste disposal: place yard waste and debris away from storm drains to help keep them clear and operational before, during, and after storms. Keep this in mind when piling post-storm yard debris.
We will keep you informed once the storm passes regarding debris clean up including the schedule and how to bag or bundle yard waste.
