Public Sanitation

Litter Crew

Public Works runs a litter crew 7 days a week. They cover the historic downtown area, public parks and the boat ramp, all within the city limits.

Street Sweeping

Street sweeping services are done in 8 zones, routing the city weekly, in a set rotation. Based on the street sweeping zones, residents should anticipate an average of service 3 to 4 times per street, annually. Keep in mind, during seasonal peaks this could be adjusted according to the area and volume of debris. Residents should note that leaves, lawn clippings and other debris should not be blown into the street, rather bagged up and placed curbside for the weekly yard waste collection day. 

Residents can assist with completion of the service by moving their cars during the time the operator will be in their area. See the zone maps as a reference guide to the street sweeping services.  Contact the Solid Waste office directly at 904-825-1049 or send an email to with special requests or for further information about your neighborhood schedules.
