FCC Environmental Services Florida, LLC to begin as Residential Curbside Collection Provider starting August 1, 2024

Beginning Thursday August 1st, St. Johns County’s new residential curbside collection provider FCC Environmental Services Florida, LLC will begin servicing the county. All current service levels will remain in place which include weekly curbside collection of household garbage, yard waste, recycling, and bulk waste as well as scheduled services like appliance pick up requested by customers.

Residents can look for a post card in the mail the week of July 8-12th which will provide information on their service days. 87% of residents’ service days will remain the same, but time of service may change. Residents can also confirm their collection days on the Recycle Coach website and app.

On December 19, 2023, during the St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) Regular Meeting, FCC Environmental Services Florida, LLC was identified as the top ranked firm, and a contract for residential solid waste collection including household garbage, recycling, and yard waste collection services was approved.

Public Works Director Greg Caldwell said, “We are excited about this new partnership with FCC Environmental Services Florida, LLC and are confident that they will sustain the current levels of quality service we currently offer our community and that are enjoyed by our customers. We conducted more than 5,000 resident surveys, performed route surveys, and received input from industry leaders to develop the bid process to select a new vendor. The selection of FCC Environmental Services Florida, LLC was based on an assessment of their staff, their qualifications, experience, approach to service, and proposed pricing.”

For the estimated 114,000 residential homes occupied by August 1, 2024, FCC Environmental Services Florida, LLC services will cost $28,265,040 per year. The contract is for 7 years with the option for two 5-year renewals. There will be no increase in customers fees for the first year of service.
