City Yard Waste Pickup Running Behind Schedule
Due to a significant increase in yard waste being placed curbside for pickup in recent weeks, City of Pensacola Sanitation is running approximately one week behind the normal yard waste pickup schedule.The public's patience is appreciated during this time, and crews are working diligently to provide yard waste pickup service to customers as efficiently as possible.
Yard debris has increased from 35 tons per day to 100 tons per day – an increase of 185 percent per day.
This is only impacting yard waste pickup for City of Pensacola Sanitation customers. Garbage and recycling pickup continue to run on schedule.
Sanitation crews will work on the Good Friday holiday and this Saturday, April 11 in an effort to get caught up with yard waste pickup services. This is a voluntary situation, and employees have chosen whether to work the additional days.
