Bulk Trash Guidelines

  • Bulk must be placed out before 7:00 AM on the assigned collection dates.
  • The collection does not apply to commercial or non-residential properties, which must provide their own bulk trash hauling.
  • Single-family residences must place their trash within five feet of their curb away from utility poles, fire hydrants, mailboxes, or any other obstructions. Items must be stacked neatly at the curb.
  • Multi-family residences are to place their trash at a location designated by their property manager.
  • The removal of hurricane debris will take precedence over bulk waste collection. During hurricane season, once a hurricane warning has been issued, bulk waste services will be suspended.
  • Bulk waste includes household items such as furniture, mattresses, appliances, carpets, padding, fencing, and other bulky non-hazardous household items. It also includes yard waste such as tree trimmings, lumber and metal poles. Broken glass will not be collected unless it is placed in a dry, sturdy container, sealed, and labeled “glass”.
  • Loose material, such as leaves, must be contained in plastic bags or garbage cans. Do not place trash in cardboard boxes or paper bags as these containers tend to break open when wet.
  • Lawn equipment drained of oil and gasoline will be accepted.
  • No special bundling of bulk waste is required.

What NOT To Do

  • Do not place at the curb more than 24 hours prior to collection day.
  • Unacceptable items will not be moved to collect acceptable items.
  • Bulk waste items set out for collection must not be placed next to a mailbox, fire hydrant, cable box, utility pole, fence, car, or any other obstruction.
  • Do not place items in front of a vacant lot — they will not be collected.
  • Place Items at your home curbside.
  • Do not stack under tree limbs or structures that may interfere with the collection truck lift arm.
  • Do not improperly prune or illegally remove your trees and palms in anticipation of bulk pick-up. This may be a code violation and may result in fines and/or tree replacements. If you need information about how to properly prune or obtain a tree removal permit, please contact our Urban Forester at 954-973-6756.
  • Items not acceptable for bulk pickup will be tagged by the hauler to inform resident why it was not acceptable.
  • No household garbage or hazardous waste.

Bulk Waste Tips

  • Always consider child safety when leaving items out for collection

  • Plan your major yard work or garage cleanouts around bulk waste collection days. Broken glass will not be collected unless it is placed in a dry, sturdy container, sealed, and labeled “glass”.

  • Bulk waste must be generated by the customer at the residential unit where the bulk is collected.  Construction material such as, roofing debris, tile, concrete, bricks,stones, etc... will not be collected unless for minor home remodeling.

Garbage Collection and Debris Cleanup After a Storm

  • Garbage collection will resume as soon as possible after a severe storm or hurricane.

  • To prevent the spread of disease, garbage collection will be given priority over debris cleanup.

  • It is imperative that garbage and waste be properly separated after a storm:

    • Household Garbage

    • Vegetative Debris

    • Construction & Demolition Materials (C&D)

    • White Goods (appliances)
