Bulk Cleanup (Year Round)

Destin’s annual Spring and Fall 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 spring or fall. 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 is picked up every Wednesday or Friday (Yard waste must be canned, bagged and/or bundled and shall not weigh in excess of 50 lbs. 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 for details.

Bulk Items/Special Pickups mean bulky materials, including yard waste, that are not stored in a standard storage container and cannot be picked up by a normally-used collection truck. Materials such as furniture, building materials, tree limbs, non-containerized trash piles and any unusually large amount of refuse not suitable for containers will be picked up at no cost. This special pickup cannot be in excess of 6 cubic yards, 2 yards X 2 yards X 1.5 yards.

Remember, Bulk Items/Special Pickups for yard waste still need to meet the standards and limbs and stumps shall not be in excess of 4 feet in length or 6 inches in diameter. Waste Management will charge a fee if the yard waste does not meet these standards.

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 Friday from 8 a.m. to noon for FREE. Note: Freon must be removed from refrigerators and freezers before dropping them off. 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.

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.
