Solid Waste Service

Garbage must be placed by the curb in the City issued garbage cart prior to 7:00 AM on your pickup day. View the single family garbage collection map for information on the pick up days for your area.

Single Family Collection Schedule

Garbage is collected twice per week. Bulk trash is picked up once per week. By grouping these activities together, we can strive to reduce the total amount of waste our community produces, while offering a mix of collection and disposal options.

The City of Coconut Creek provides four types of solid waste services and participates in a Household Hazardous Waste Program. Household hazardous events are held monthly.

Proper Garbage Cart Placement


The cart should be placed within two feet (2’) of the edge of road. The front of the cart (side with bar) must be facing the road so that the mechanical arm of the truck can attach to the bar.

Improper Garbage Cart Placement

It is important that the carts be placed curbside properly. The driver will not exit the collection truck to make carts accessible for collection. To that end, if they are not placed correctly, they will not be collected.
