The Board of County Commissioners met in a Special Meeting on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at 6:00 pm. At this meeting the Board approved to pick up debris resulting from Hurricane Matthew on county maintained roads. Debris pickup is scheduled to begin at dawn on Monday, October 17th and will go through dusk, seven (7) days a week until completed.
Debris will be picked up from the County right of way. Residents should leave their debris close to the edge of the road without jeopardizing public safety. Only yard debris and construction/demolition debris will be picked up. This includes items such as leaves, plants, logs and tree limbs, as well as shingles, fencing, drywall, lumber and carpet. Items should be taken to the curb and separated by categories. Household hazardous waste (paint cans, batteries, and electronics) will not be picked up.
Residents are advised that garbage bags will not be picked up, and any yard debris in bags will not be picked up.
Three sites will also open on Monday for citizens to take yard debris. Proof of Nassau County residency is required to use these sites. Proof of residency may include a government issued ID, a utility bill, etc. The following sites will accept vegetative debris only and will not be able to accept construction/demolition debris:
- Bailey Road Maintenance Yard in Fernandina Beach located at 3163 Bailey Road
- Hilliard Maintenance Yard in Hilliard located at 37356 Pea Farm Road
- Woods Lane in Callahan located approximately 0.6 miles south of Crawford Road
