City of Pensacola residents are reminded that the final pass for Hurricane Sally debris collection is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 16. Residents should place any remaining debris curbside now for collection since not every location will receive pickup on Nov. 16.
City of Pensacola Sanitation crews and contractors have collected over 12,530 loads of Hurricane Sally debris totaling 540,330 cubic yards since collection began on Monday, Sept. 21.
The public's patience is appreciated as crews work through every neighborhood in the city to collect any remaining debris generated by Hurricane Sally.
City of Pensacola residents are reminded not to place yard debris in plastic garbage bags. Yard debris should be placed curbside either loose or in paper bags.

- Large appliances such as refrigerators, washer/dryers, air conditioners, stoves, water heaters and dishwashers.
- Hazardous waste such as oil, battery, pesticide, paint, cleaning supplies and compressed gas.
