City employees will be stationed at these locations from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.

You are allowed to throw out the following:

  • mattresses
  • tires
  • general household items
  • small appliances
  • electronics

Items such as hazardous materials, paint, fluorescent lighting, chemicals, car batteries, construction debris or yard waste will not be collected. Yard waste, large appliance disposal and furniture disposal are part of the weekly garbage service provided by Waste Pro. If you need to dispose of any of the items that will not be collected during this initiative, you can drop them off at Okaloosa County’s drop-off site.
