A maximum of 10 bags will be available for each Town address during normal business hours of 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. The sandbags will be empty. The bag fill site at the intersection of Sadler and Cross will open at 8:00 am on Tuesday, September 27, for those residents who do not have fill material. The fill site will be unmanned. Please bring your own shovel or trowel to fill your sandbags.
Oakland Trash Collection
WM is closely monitoring Hurricane Ian. Based on the current trajectory and intensity, WM may not be able to perform normal operations starting Friday or Saturday. Please do not set trash at the curb on Wednesday nor during hurricane conditions. Conditions permitting, WM will resume collection operations on Friday or Saturday this week. WM will not operate when sustained wind speeds exceed 35 mph. Resuming “post storm” operations will depend on storm damage safety assessments and open disposal facilities. At this time, residents/customers should refrain from placing additional yard waste or other bulky items at curbside. WM has created the attached website in order to keep our municipal customers informed and updated on impending Florida storms/hurricanes: www.wmfloridastorm.com.
Storm Debris CollectionHousehold trash and recycling must be kept separate from storm debris. Per FEMA directions, please separate storm debris into the categories below and place at the curb away from your regular household trash and recycling. Waste Management will pick up CONTAINERIZED trash, recycling and yard waste. Other contractors will remove storm debris. Learn more by visiting WM.
