YULEE, Fla. – The Nassau County Public Works Department believes the first phase of the debris pickup along county maintained roads will be complete on Friday, November 11th. Residents should be ready for the next phase by Monday.

The removal of debris on the west side of the County will be complete on November 7th. Nassau County will begin a second pass on November 14th.

Citizens should have all debris ready for pickup no later than November 14th.  Any debris that is put out for pick up after November 14th may not be picked up. 

If you feel that your debris was missed in the collection process, contact Nassau County Engineering Services at (904) 530-6225 or Road and Bridge at (904) 530-6175.  You can also email your questions and concerns to debris@nassaucountyfl.com.

Some sticks and/or leaves may be left behind and some lawn maintenance may be required by the property owner. 

To assist with cleanup efforts citizens are reminded of the following:

• Paper or plastic bags left at the curb will not be picked up, and may prevent the contractor from picking up any debris left at the site.
• Bagged debris will not be emptied by the contractor.
• Large limbs and logs may require additional equipment, therefore, this type of debris may be left behind on the first pass through a neighborhood.
• Separate the yard debris such as limbs, leaves and logs from construction/demolition debris.  If you don't separate the debris, you will prevent the contractor from picking up any debris at the site.
• Appliances and furniture will not be picked up.
• Household hazardous waste such as paint cans, batteries and electronics will not be picked up.

Two locations are available to residents to drop off vegetative debris:

• Bailey Road Maintenance Yard in Fernandina Beach located at 3163 Bailey Road
• Hilliard Maintenance Yard in Hilliard located at 37356 Pea Farm Road

Proof of Nassau County residency is required to use these sites.  Proof of residency may include a government issued ID, a utility bill, etc.  These sites will accept vegetative debris only and will not be able to accept construction/demolition debris.

Updates concerning debris pickup will be communicated through the County's news website, www.thecountyinsider.com, and the County's Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/nassaucountyfl.
