What if my HOBO (wheeled garbage container) needs repair?
Call the Public Works Department at 690-3961 and they will pick it up, make the repairs, and return it to you. Unless the HOBO has been abused, there is no charge for this service.
Can I place yard trash in my wheeled garbage container (Hobo)?
No. Your garbage will not be picked up if yard trash is mixed with household garbage, as the landfill operations will reject loads if they contain any yard trash. Place your yard trash in two (2) 32 gallon garbage cans; once they are full, you can use plastic bags - the bags will be emptied and placed back in the container. Large limbs and branches can be cut into four-foot lengths and placed at curbside for pickup.

State and Federal laws now require the treatment of storm water runoff. The governing body for the State of Florida in our area is the Saint Johns Water Management District. Storm water runoff is a major source of pollution to receiving bodies of water.
What are the benefits of treating storm water?
Treating storm water runoff helps to remove pollutants, soil sediments, suspended and settleable solids. Also, there is a benefit of recharging the underwater aquifer used in potable water systems.
