Only storm-generated debris should be placed in the right of way. Storm-generated debris includes tree limbs, logs, and branches; loose construction materials created by the storm event; items inside the residence destroyed by the storm; broken glass; and wallboard, carpet, and other building materials damaged by the storm.
Regular household garbage should NOT be placed in the right of way, and should be disposed as it was pre-storm.
Items removed as part of the demolition, reconstruction, repair, or removal of a residence should be disposed by a contracted waste-service provider. Debris is eligible for placement on the right of way if the demo/reconstruction is done by the homeowner or a volunteer group.
Only Panama City residents may place storm debris on the public rights of way within the city limits. Commercial businesses, including apartments, should arrange with their contracted waste services provider for disposal. Waste from commercial properties should not be placed on the right of way.
Contractors assisting with the demolition, reconstruction, repair, or removal of items from a residence are required to make arrangements for disposal of items from the property. Contractors are not permitted to dispose of debris on the right of way and should haul the debris to a landfill.
Panama City will announce deadlines for residents to place materials in the right-of-way for removal. Those deadlines will be based on when the city’s debris-removal contractors expect to complete collections. Material placed on the right-of-way after those dates will be considered illegal dumping.
Residents are asked to ensure that contractors have arranged for the disposal of waste from the demolition, reconstruction or repair of their homes.
Unauthorized dumping on city right-of-ways is a felony. Please report any illegal dumping to law enforcement.
