Debris Clean-up Guidelines and Solid Waste Schedule
Debris Clean Up
In the coming days, the City will be working with our debris management contractor to assess the volume of limbs, yard waste and construction debris. This initial assessment period is necessary to comply with FEMA guidelines for reimbursement. After the initial assessment, our contractor will be working as quickly as possible to remove the debris. The City appreciates your patience during this process, as it could take a few weeks to complete. We ask that you use the following guidelines to help expedite the process:
Solid Waste Schedule (week of 9/11 thru 9/15)

Palmetto is taking a fresh look at our historic past. Over the past few years, local artist Cory Wright has painted scenes of various historic structures, and the City has featured her artwork on some of our reusable cloth bags available during the Manatee County Fair.
Previously, the bags have portrayed Old Main Street, with one of the buildings dating back to 1902; the Woman’s Club which was started by a group in 1900; the Green Bridge, named after Bradenton merchant E.P. Green back in 1927; and the Ag Museum which is just filled with Palmetto’s roots.
This year, the City featured Cory Wright’s rendition of Providence Missionary Baptist Church, which was established in 1921. The church has continued to be a fundamental, orthodox Baptist church of more than 95 years.
Look for other iconic buildings within Palmetto. Submit your suggestions to City Hall and maybe we can have an artist capture the building’s charm and history on next years’ bag.
