Irma Recovery: Solid Waste Update

Correction: Rural collection Centers will accept their normal load limits of one level pickup truck load of mixed waste including wood/yard waste, recycling, and garbage combined.

Update:  For Friday, September 15, 2017, the following rural collection centers will be open:  Fairbanks, High Springs, North Central and Archer. Once power is restored, we will open the remaining Pfifer location. Hours of operations for the four centers for Friday will be from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The Leveda Brown transfer station is open for regular operating hours Friday, September 15, 2017, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for Friday, and 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 16, closed on Sunday.

Curbside collection:  Although services have resumed but been delayed by one day, many neighborhoods were not accessible this week due to downed trees and electrical wires and flooding or other storm related delays. If you have any services missed this week, it will not be collected until your next regularly scheduled pick up day next week.

Alachua County’s emergency storm debris contractors will continue in West Hills and Deer Run areas on Friday. Our contractors are continuing to bring in resources, and as new monitors and trucks are FEMA certified, we will assign debris removal vehicles to additional areas. Our contractors will continue to work seven days a week until all debris collection is completed. This will be updated daily as areas are added.

We ask that our residents remain patient and call our Waste Collection Office at 352-338-3233 if you need more information. Thanks so much to you all for your cooperation and patience!
