Jacksonville City Government RE: House Debris and Yard Debris
City crews and our hauling contractor will continue to remove Hurricane Florence debris from the curb sides of Jacksonville neighborhoods for several weeks. We’d like to remind you to please keep tree or yard debris in a separate pile and construction or household debris in a separate pile. This will ensure the quick removal of debris. It is against City policy to burn trash and yard debris.
