Yard Waste
Collection Schedule
City yard waste is collected on Wednesdays. The regular sanitation schedule may be altered during some holiday weeks. Holiday schedules are publicized on our website, online city calendar, social media platforms, G10TV, and in the "The Daily News" newspaper.

Yard waste includes grass, clippings, leaves, and small limbs and branches. Please note that sod, dirt, rock and land clearing debris are not collected by the city. 

If you have excessive yard waste, call 910 938-5338 to schedule removal.

Collection Guidelines
To help us serve you better, please follow these yard waste collection guidelines:
  • Separate yard waste and household garbage into different containers.
  • Place construction and building materials separate from yard waste.
  • Place grass, leaves, clippings, and limbs in 20- to 32-gallon containers or in paper bags (do not use plastic).
    • The weight limit per container is 50 pounds.
  • Volume should not exceed 128 cubic feet (4ft wide x 4ft high x 8ft long).
    • For large removal assistance, call 910 938-5338.
  • Limbs should be less than 4ft in length; logs should be no larger than 2ft in diameter and 4ft in length.
  • Place yard waste less than 3ft from curb and at least 3ft from other objects, including containers, vehicles, electric boxes, and poles. Do not place yard waste in the roadway.
  • Do not use City issued 96-gallon refuse container or 64-gallon recycle container for yard waste.
  • Yard waste piles such as limbs and branches that are in excess of one cord (4ft x 4ft x 8ft) or 128 cubic feet may be subject to a collection fee. Visit the bulk item page for more information. Contact Sanitation at 910 938-5338 for assistance.

Yard Waste Collection Following A StormYard Debris Pickup
Following any major storm, City Sanitation and Street Crews will be working hard to collect yard debris piles. Jacksonville Sanitation will prioritize yard debris collection according to the hardest hit areas, starting in areas with the greatest amount of fallen trees.

Yard waste piles that do not exceed 128 cubic feet (4ft wide x 4ft high x 8ft long) or debris that is placed in containers will allow for easier and potentially quicker pickup by Sanitation crews. Larger debris piles will need to be collected by specialized equipment, which may take time.

Yard waste should be placed less than 3ft from the curb and at least 3ft from other objects, including containers, vehicles, electric boxes, and poles. Yard waste and containers should never be placed in the roadway.
