The City of St. Augustine’s solid waste department will postpone residential recycling collection until Oct. 20 or 21 to focus on Ian’s rubbish and household waste collection, city officials said Wednesday.
In the meantime, St. Augustine residents can use the following free collection and recycling locations to dispose of their recyclables.
601 Liberia Avenue to the end of Liberia Avenue by the Solid Waste Department and Wastewater Treatment Plant.
North City by Las Palmas Condos on San Marco Avenue
Red Cox Drive, by soccer field, behind RB Hunt Elementary School
Residents are asked to put yard debris on the curb for collection by city officials. Debris must be placed within 10 feet of the curb so that pick-up crews and claw trucks can reach it. Residents are asked not to place debris under dangling limbs, guide wires, electrical and communication lines, or in streets that may obstruct vehicle traffic, fire hydrants, mailboxes, and utility boxes. According to the city, ensuring access to roads and piles of rubble is essential to speed up the recovery process. If possible, avoid street parking for direct access by debris removal trucks.
The city will also remind residents that it is important to sort garden waste, appliances, and construction and demolition debris by placing them on the curb and picking them up.

Questions or additional information regarding waste collection can be sent to the City’s Solid Waste Division at 904-825-1049 during normal business hours Monday through Friday.
