Hurricane Ian Storm Debris Assessment
Preliminary damage and debris assessments by Nassau County’s emergency responders indicate minor impacts to the area. Therefore, the county will not be activating supplemental debris removal contracts. Residents are advised to separate their household and yard debris and dispose of it through normal channels.
Excess yard waste should be cut and bagged according to waste-removal providers’ guidelines. Please contact your garbage hauler directly with questions.
Excess yard waste and construction/demolition debris may be taken to Sandhill Recycling Center at 153326 CR-108 in Yulee for a fee. Call 904-225-2801 for hours and rates.
Residents of local municipalities should follow city and town debris disposal procedures.
Nassau County’s Convenience and Recycle Center will be open on Saturday, October 1 and Sunday, October 2, 2022 from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Please note that this site is NOT permitted to take yard or construction debris. This site accepts normal household waste for disposal and only paper, cardboard, glass, metals, plastics, tires, electronics, and latex paint for recycling. https://www.nassaucountyfl.com/368/Convenience-Recycling-Center
Pursuant to Florida Statute, Chapter 403.413, it is unlawful for any person to dump litter in any manner or amount in or on any public highway, road, street, alley, or thoroughfare. Individuals caught dumping are subject to a citation.
The consequence of that decision is that people have started burning their hurricane debris. The County Manager should drive around and see all of the fires that are burning today. I went to the Publix and there is smoke and the smell of smoke everywhere.
More debris fires will be started by homeowners as word gets around that the county is not picking up the hurricane debris.
