Sanitation & Debris Collection

In the event of a major storm or hurricane:

If you have debris in your yard, and are in a hurry to get rid of it, here's what city officials ask that you do:

  1. Put whatever debris you are able to fit into your city garbage container. Before placing containers out for pick-up, top them off with any small branches that remain in your yard.
  2. Take whatever debris you can transport safely to one of the city's five Brush Sites, open seven days a week (Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., weekends from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) If you don't have a truck or the ability to take your debris to a Brush Site, perhaps a neighbor or family member can assist you.

See Brush Site locations listed on our Sanitation page.

  • 1000 62nd Ave. NE.
  • 7750 26th Ave. N.
  • 2500 26th Ave. S.
  • 4015 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street S.
  • 2453 20th Ave. N.

Debris Separation for Pickup

3. As a last resort, place piles of debris on your curb and request a special pick-up. Brush from the storm should be cut up in lengths of four feet or less, and placed between the sidewalk and the curb. Please separate vegetation from other storm-related debris, such as broken outdoor furniture, construction or demolition materials. Please do not stack debris in rear alleys. You may call 893-7111 or log your request at Action Online.
