Important Message: Hurricane Isaias Storm Debris will continue to be collected over the coming days. To help the process, we ask that items be placed along the curb, not in the street, in an orderly fashion. Click here for details. Remember: It is illegal to burn yard waste in the city limits.

Holiday Collection Schedule Changes
Changes in the collection service schedule may occur during holidays. The City’s Sanitation Holiday Calendar reflects only days that there is a change or interruption in service.
To receive alerts about changes to the Regular Sanitation Collection Schedule, sign up with Jacksonville Connect.
The next Holiday Collection Schedule:
In an effort to beat the heat, starting in June, Sanitation crews begin collection operations at 6:30AM. This allows employees to adjust to the summer heat and work more efficiently. Items normally placed out at the curb by 7:30AM should be placed ready for collection by 6AM throughout the summer months.
Please note that the state of North Carolina has banned specific items from the landfill. A full list of these items is available on the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) website.
