The city of St. Augustine said that due to deteriorating weather conditions, solid waste yard debris collections will be suspended Thursday, Nov. 10. Residents are urged to secure debris and bins to the best of their ability as Nicole approaches and to be prepared for storm conditions.

“We understand these delays are not ideal and are an inconvenience for our customers, and for that I apologize,” said Utilities Director Todd Grant. “In the interest of the safety of our staff and the public, this decision was necessary. It is not safe for our heavy equipment to be on the roads during flooding and high winds.”

As a reminder, residential recycling will not be collected this week but will resume on Thursday, Nov. 17, and Friday, Nov. 18.
