City warns the community of unauthorized haulers

The city is aware of unauthorized debris haulers operating within the city and is seeking the community’s assistance by asking that such vendors not be employed.

The Code of the City of St. Augustine states that it is illegal for a business that collects, hauls, or transports construction and demolition debris without a valid franchise.

Specifically, Section 30-14(a) of the City Code provides that it “shall be unlawful for any person or other legal entity not holding a valid and appropriate franchise issued by the city and which allows such person or entity to engage in the business of, or to receive compensation or consideration for, the performance of the following: Collecting, hauling or transporting construction and demolition debris by containerized motor vehicles, roll-offs, compactor containers or dumpsters from any property within the city.”
