How do I dispose of sandbags?

Hurricane season isn't over, so hold onto your sandbags, just in case they are needed again!  We recommend storing sandbags in the shade to avoid sun damage to the bags.  

If they're not in a condition to be kept, proper disposal is to empty the bags before putting in trash.  One suggestion is to empty the sand into your lawn or garden.

Filled sandbags will not be collected by solid waste if they are set curbside.
