Leon County is removing debris along public and private roadways according to zones. Upon the completion of the first pass for debris collection county-wide, a second pass will commence by zone to ensure that all of the debris has been removed from the roadways. The County's EIP will be updated accordingly to provide the latest information on debris removal efforts.
Contractors began the 2nd pass of debris pickup on Tuesday, November 13. During the 2nd pass, contractors will also begin collecting storm-related construction and demolition (C&D) materials. Debris should be separated at the curb from vegetative, construction and demolition, appliances and white goods and electronics, and household hazardous waste.
Crews will be collecting debris in the following areas Tuesday, November 13 through Friday, November 16
• Zone #1: Meridian Road, Killearn Lakes, Golden Eagle, Witherspoon, R&R Rhodes, Timber Ridge, Millwood Estates

As you continue to place debris at the curb, please remember the following tips:
- All debris for collection should be placed curbside between the sidewalk or property line and the curb.
- When possible, leave vegetative debris loose and unbagged at the curb.
- Debris should be separated at the curb from vegetative, construction and demolition, appliances and white goods and electronics, and household hazardous waste.
- Be careful and safe when moving large, bulky storm-related debris to the curb.
- Debris removal trucks will not pick up household garbage; Waste Pro will continue to collect trash and recycling as usual.
- Do not stack or lean debris against sprinkler heads, meters, poles, trees, backflows, and other structures.
If we picked up debris in your neighborhood or area, but haven’t picked up your debris pile yet, it could be for these reasons:
- The debris removal trucks with trailers are too large to turn around in a cul-de-sac.We will come back to your neighborhood for a second and third pass to ensure all debris is picked up. During that pass, a smaller debris removal truck will be able to pick up your debris.
- The debris removal truck could've been at capacity, which requires them to return to the debris drop site. They will resume picking up in the same area.
- Your road may be too narrow for the debris removal truck assigned to your area. The driver will make a note and a smaller truck will be reassigned to pick up your debris.
- Debris piles under utility lines or low canopy trees may have prevented the debris truck from safely removing that pile.
Our debris crews are working sun up to sun down seven days a week to remove all debris from our community, so if you place it by the curb we will collect all debris until the work is done. If you have any questions, please contact Leon County Citizens Connect at www.LeonCountyFL.gov/CitizensConnect or call Leon County Public Works at (850) 606-1500.
