Solid Waste Residential Collections
Residential garbage collection is provided twice a week. The city offers front-door solid waste collection service that allows residents to place their refuse next to their house or in front of their garage or carport. Never put anything on top of or near trash containers because those items may be collected and disposed of with the refuse.

Rules and Regulations
  • Quantity: Two 30-gallon trash containers or three 20-gallon containers will be collected next to homes. All other waste must be placed within 6 feet of the curb. All garbage must be in containers or marked as waste.
  • Weight: All refuse containers must weigh less than 30 pounds.
  • Oversized items: For disposal of oversized items, such as furniture, appliances and other large items, residents must call the Solid Waste Division at 239-213-4700 for special pick-up.
  • Remodeling debris: There are special charges that apply to remodeling or construction / demolition debris. Residents must call the Solid Waste Division at 239-213-4700 to make arrangements prior to collection. Examples of these materials include:
