Yard Waste Removal Guidelines


All debris should be placed at the curb on your assigned pick-up day. This enables the city crews to remove the bagged debris along with small items and schedule additional pick-ups if needed.


Furniture & Appliances

These items require separate pick up and disposal also. Furniture is transported to the solid waste facility in Fort Walton Beach and the appliances are hauled to a recycling drop off facility in North Okaloosa County.

Leaves, Grass Clippings & Small Limbs

All leaves, grass clippings and small debris must be bagged. Scheduled pick-up days are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday according to your address. Trash bags can be purchased at the Utility Billing office for $10.70 per box of 50.

Residential Garbage & Recycling

Household garbage and recycling services are contracted by the city through Waste Management Inc. Any comments or questions regarding this service can be obtained by calling Niceville City Hall at 850-279-6436, ext 1100.

Large Trees & Construction Debris

These materials are usually picked up on Thursday. All construction material and large trees are disposed in C & D landfills located in North Okaloosa and Walton Counties.

Tree Services & Contractors

The city requires all tree service companies and building contractors to remove and dispose of any debris they generate. When using the services of a contractor, be sure their quote to you includes debris removal.
