County officials hope to begin debris pickup Monday, Oct. 17.

In a news release, Nassau County Public Works says that specific routes for pickup are yet to be determined. A Board of County Commissioners meeting scheduled for Wednesday will nail down the specifics.

Residents are to leave their debris close to the edge of the road - but not in the road or jeapordizing public safety.

IMPORTANT: Only yard debris or construction and demolition debris will be picked up.

This includes:

  • Leaves
  • Plants
  • Logs
  • Tree limbs
  • Shingles
  • Fencing
  • Drywall
  • Lumber
  • Carpet

The county asks you to separate the items by type.

As a reminder, household waste - paint, batteries or electronics - will not be picked up. Nor will garbage bags or any debris in bags.
