The Board of County Commissioners will convene in a Special Meeting on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at 6:00 pm to determine specific information concerning storm debris pick up.

At this time, the Public Works Department anticipates debris pick up resulting from Hurricane Matthew will not begin before Monday, October 17th. Specific routes for pickup are still being determined.

Debris will be picked up from the County right of way, in unincorporated Nassau County. Residents should leave their yard 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, 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.

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.

For additional information, please contact Nassau County Engineering Services at 904 530-6225 or Road and Bridge at 904 530-6175
