Reminder: Do Not Use Plastic Bags for Yard Debris
City of Pensacola Sanitation customers are reminded to please place yard debris loose at the curb for pickup. Do not place yard debris in plastic garbage bags.
Yard debris that is already bagged at the curb will still be collected, but there may be a delay since bagged debris cannot be processed as yard waste. Yard debris should be placed curbside either loose or in paper bags.
Plastic bags also prevent the city from receiving FEMA reimbursement for yard debris collection.
A total of 15 crews (10 city crews and five contractor crews) began picking up debris for City of Pensacola residents Monday, Sept. 21. As of Wednesday, Sept. 23, crews have picked up 383 loads of yard debris totaling over 15,500 cubic yards.
Debris pickup area maps are being added to the City of Pensacola's Facebook page as they are finalized with contractors.
