Santa Rosa Co. hosting workshop on Flood Mitigation Assistance Program

The Santa Rosa County Commission approved flood debris pickup in the unincorporated areas of Santa Rosa County at the May 8 commission meeting.

Crews from the Santa Rosa Public Works department will begin picking up sorted debris placed curbside beginning Friday, May 9. Residents who do not live in the cities of Gulf Breeze or Milton can call (850) 626-0191 to schedule a pickup.

Accepted debris includes furniture, construction and demolition, appliances and electronics. No household hazardous waste, household garbage or yard debris will be collected. Flood debris must be placed on the curb by Sunday, May 18. 

Residents should avoid placing debris near power poles, fire hydrants, water meters, mail boxes or other utilities.

Crews are not allowed on private property so all debris must be in the right-of-way area, typically the area from a power pole to the curb.

Debris must be sorted and placed curbside in the following categories:

Construction & demolition debris - furniture, carpet, tile, steel, glass, brick, concrete, asphalt roofing material, pipe, gypsum wallboard, lumber or anything used in the construction, renovation, and demolition of a structure.

White goods - washers, dryers, refrigerators, ranges, microwaves, water heaters, freezers, small AC units

Electronics - T.V.s, computers, monitors, fax machines, stereos, speakers, etc.

No engine or cooking oil, gasoline, paint, antifreeze, oil filters, solvents, pesticides, fertilizers, batteries, helium tanks, propane bottles, pool cleaners or other household hazardous waste will be collected.

These items can be disposed of at no charge year round, Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Household Hazardous Waste Center located at the entrance of the Central Landfill, 6337 Da Lisa Road in Milton.
