The City Commission approved Resolution 2021-30 authorizing the City of Fernandina Beach to assume responsibility of residential yard waste services. This transition will officially take place on April 7, 2021. 

Grapple trucks will be used to pick up residential yard waste (5 cu. yards max). Citizens who bag their waste must use biodegradable bags. Biodegradable bags can be purchased at local hardware stores. Waste should be piled and placed at the edge of yards for the grapple truck to pick up. Do not mix yard debris with trash! Please also be cognizant of storm drains and other obstructions (hydrants, electrical boxes, low limbs, etc.). 

Questions and concerns may be addressed to, or (904) 310-3310.
