Destin’s annual fall and spring cleanups are no longer one day events.
They are now year round. Residents can call Waste Management to schedule a bulk pickup any time, for free. No more waiting for that one day in the fall or spring.
The city of Destin encourages all residential customers to take advantage of this service throughout the year. The free, year-round cleanup initiative helps raise awareness of the city’s goal to provide a healthy and clean environment for its residents, businesses and visitors.
Bulk items such as patio furniture, couches and barbecue grills (with the gas tank removed) will be hauled away weekly with an easy call to Waste Management, 862-7141. If you have any questions regarding the type of items you can place curbside, contact Waste Management at 862-7141 or the city’s Public Services Department at 837-6869.
Yard waste and construction debris are picked up every Wednesday or Friday (yard waste must be canned, bagged and/or bundled and shall not weigh in excess of 50 pounds per container or bundle, and shall not be in excess of 4 feet in length or 6 inches in diameter). Total volume per each yard waste service day shall not exceed 2 cubic yards — approximately the amount that can be placed in the bed of a standard pickup truck.) See the pickup schedule map at www.cityofdestin.com for details.
Looking to get rid of white goods? No need to wait for a twice-per-year opportunity anymore. These items (washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc.) can now be dropped off at your convenience at the city’s public services maintenance yard anytime Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon for free. The facility is located at 3494 Commons Drive. Please call the Public Services Department at 837-6869 ahead of time to schedule an appointment so that staff can be ready to help. A curbside pickup can also be scheduled through Waste Management by calling 862-7141. Some fees may apply for white goods picked up curbside.
Proof of physical residency in Destin (utility bill, driver’s license, etc.) must be provided prior to unloading the items at the city’s public services maintenance yard. A P.O. Box will not be considered proof of residency. City employees will be available to assist in unloading the items.
Bulk cleanup services and white goods drop-offs are not available to commercial customers.
