Garbage Collection and Yard Waste Guidelines
Household Garbage Guide
- All waste must be placed at curb before 7:00 AM for collection.
- All garbage must be containerized for collection in a garbage bag or can. Bags must be securely tied and cans must have tight fitting lids.
- Do not mix garbage and yard waste together - they must be in separate containers.
- Each container set out must not weigh more than 50 lbs.
- Garbage cans must not be larger than 32 gallon size.
- Auto and boat parts, propane tanks and gas cans (even if empty) cannot be collected.
Yard Waste Guide
We encourage you to compost your yard waste and leave grass clippings on the ground when you mow. However, if you prefer to have this material collected curbside, please follow these guidelines:
- Do NOT mix garbage with yard waste.
- Grass clippings, leaves and small twigs must be containerized.
- Neatly stack limbs, branches, palm fronds, etc. at the curb so that a person can reach around the pile to pick it up. If you have more than a few branches and limbs, please take care not to create a tangled pile.
- Limbs must not exceed 4 feet.
- No single piece of tree can exceed 50 lbs.
Single Stream Recycling Trucks
Waste Pro's fleet of compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks are equipped with automated arms specially designed to empty Single Stream Recycling Carts. The arm is controlled from inside the vehicle so Waste Pro employees do not leave the truck. This makes the process quicker and safer for the operators.
Because the trucks run on compressed natural gas, they are much quicker and quieter then diesel engines and emit less exhaust, which will result in cleaner air for our community.
