Debris Removal Continues

Tallahassee residents will pay less next year for the same high-quality services. This news comes with the approval of the City’s Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) budget, which focuses on the community’s highest priorities, including public safety, economic development and infrastructure improvements, all of which culminate into an exceptional quality of life.

Get it to the curb! As soon as Hurricane Michael’s winds subsided, the City began removing debris caused by the storm. To date, more than 4,000 tons of debris have been collected. The City will continue to pick up and dispose of storm-related debris, including yard waste, demolition debris and other materials. Customers should expect to be serviced during their designated red/blue week.

Depending on where you live, your route will be serviced on either a red week or blue week. The red/blue week calendar can be found here. To find out which route you are on, click here or call 891-4968.

Debris should be placed at the curbside or property line in front of your residence away from all obstacles and be separated into the following categories: vegetative, construction and demolition, appliances and white goods, electronics and household hazardous waste. As part of the debris removal plan, please note the following:

  • debris removal service will be performed for all citizens in the City of Tallahassee
  • yard waste will now be collected at the same time as storm debris until further notice
  • debris removal trucks will not pick up household garbage
  • perishable food waste should be placed in garbage containers for regular pick up
  • do not stack or lean debris against sprinkler heads, meters, poles, trees, backflows and other structures

To focus on debris removal following Hurricane Michael, the City will cancel its biannual Cash for Trash event, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 20.
