In an effort to be the most effective the debris contractor is working as efficiently as possible, and focusing on major debris removal, therefore, it is important to note that there may be some sticks and/or leaves left behind. 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. Failure to separate the debris 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.
