Unincorporated Bay County Debris Removal

Debris removal is under way in Bay County, as 192 trucks are running countywide during daylight hours. More than 75,000 cubic yards of debris are collected each day and, to date, the county has collected approximately 600,000 cubic yards of debris out of an estimated 5 million cubic yards total. The effort is expected to continue through December.

Residents are asked to organize debris into categories on the county right-of-way (ROW) – vegetative, construction materials, metal and appliances – for removal. If no room is left on the ROW, please place debris as close as possible. The first pass of debris removal is for vegetative materials and will be removed from the roadways and ROW, including as much continuous debris as the machinery can reach without entering private property. As soon as debris is cleared by the hauler, it is important that residents bring debris from the rest of the yard to the front public right-of-way (ROW) so that it can be removed during a later pass. When placing debris curbside, please do not place it over the water meter, near a fire hydrant or in a drainage ditch.  Plastic bags and household trash will not be collected as debris.

Debris on private roads and gated communities will be included in the collection effort, but private road property owners must sign a waiver allowing contractors to remove debris from their roadways. The waivers are available online at www.recoverbaycounty.com.

Also at the Steel Field Landfill Hurricane Debris from your house can be dropped off at the Steel Field Landfill (11411 Landfill Rd, Panama City Beach) for no charge. You must show proof of residency, such as a driver’s license or a bill. The extended hours are Monday – Sunday, 7 am – 6 pm.
