Debris Removal
The City of Nassau Bay activates its Debris Removal Program after major disasters to assist in cleaning up our community.

Update: September 11th, 2017: Harvey Debris Removal to Continue

Thank you for your patience and understanding as the City of Nassau Bay continues to work with our vendor to remove storm debris. Due to the large amount of debris, CrowderGulf will now have separate crews picking up debris based on the type of debris. They will have separate crews for:
  • Tree and vegetative debris
  • Household hazardous waste
  • White goods such as refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.
  • Electronics
  • Construction debris such as sheet rock, carpet, furniture, etc. 

At this time we are unable to release specific dates and times when debris will be removed, but crews will continue to remove debris as they are able. Please keep in mind it may take several weeks before all debris is removed. The entire region has had a staggering amount of debris that needs to be removed and debris removal crews are diligently working with not only Nassau Bay but several neighboring communities as well so please bear with us during this process. 

Please remember to:
  • Avoid parking street side and blocking the debris as any blocked debris will not be picked up.
  • Do not bag debris as bag debris will not be picked up. If debris is already bagged open the top of bags for inspection prior to removal.
  • Separate storm debris accordingly (view how to separate debris flyer): 
    • Vegetative debris
    • Construction and demolition debris
    • Appliance and white goods
    • Electronics
    • Household hazardous waste consists of items such as cleaners, paints and other hazardous materials and should NOT be mixed with other debris. 
  • Keep trash bins, bags, and recycling separate from debris.
  • Keep roadways and sidewalks clear. Streets must be passable for emergency vehicles, utility vehicles, and school buses.
  • If debris was left behind in your yard, please move it to the right-of-way. Second passes will be made to pickup remaining items.
  • Keep children and pets away from debris piles.
  • Do not burn debris or rubbish. 

As a reminder, this service is for storm debris removal only

Harvey Debris Removal Assistance Begins Saturday, September 9th, 2017

Harvey Debris Removal Assistance will begin on Saturday, September 9, 2017, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Please have all your storm debris curbside by 7:00 a.m. on Saturday. Any debris not curbside by this time, may not be removed.

Please remember:

    If your curbside debris is blocked by a parked vehicle or trailer, it will not be removed. We highly advise no curbside/street parking between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 9. 
    Any debris that is bagged (no matter the color of the bag) will not be picked up. This includes any bagged vegetation.
  • Separate storm debris from household garbage.
    Demolition and construction debris, electronics, appliances, vegetation and hazardous household waste should be clearly separated from your Ameriwaste trash bins. It is not necessary to break-down demolition/construction debris, you may leave it in large pieces.
  • Keep roadways and sidewalks as clear as possible.
    Items should be placed between the sidewalk and curb. Do not place debris below the curb or in the street. Do not place debris near trees, poles or other structures; this includes fire hydrants and meters. If you do not have a sidewalk, place debris at the edge of your property before the curb.
  • Keep children and pets away from debris piles.
  • Please drive carefully when behind debris-loaded trucks.
    It is against city ordinance to burn rubbish, debris or trash of any kind, including leaves, brush, trees or parts of trees.
  • The City of Nassau Bay’s storm debris provider is Crowder Gulf Disaster Recovery and Debris Management. Please remember this program is for storm debris removal only.
