Gulf County will purchase a kit (set of 2 metal gate hasps and installation hardware) to be installed on either side of a regular 96-gallon tote, which will be attached to both the lid and the can. Residents can obtain the kits as follows:

1. Residents can pick them up at Gulf County Grants at 1000 Cecil G Costin Sr Blvd,
Port St. Joe, Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., E.T.

2. Each resident will be required to fill out a form stating their name, address and the
