As Hurricane Ian damaged homes and buildings, strong winds and heavy rain paused most trash collection.
We broke down the current garbage collection schedules in a county-by-county list:

Residents should place trash on the curb, bag yard waste and separate materials.
Residential and commercial trash pickup will be on Saturday, Oct.1, including pickups that were skipped on Wednesday. Pickups that were skipped on Thursday will be collected on Sunday, Oct. 2.

The crew will pick up carted garbage, carted recycled items and contained yard waste around 6 a.m.
