Waste Collection Service Changes

Attention residents in the ADS and SWS waste collection service areas: your collection schedule may be changing Jan 6.

Important Schedule Change AheadDue to rapid community growth, changes are being implemented to help the haulers provide quality services to Jacksonville residents. These changes do not affect apartment complexes, commercial businesses, multi-family housing communities, or other places that do not utilize City of Jacksonville residential waste collection services.

Calendars are mailed to all residents.  Additionally, residents can visit to see their new collection schedule or contact 630-City (2489).
