The City provides once a month bulk trash pickup for single family residences, as well as multi-family residences up to six units. There are also two scheduled bulk trash pickups each year for most condo/townhome complexes - one in March and one in September. In 2015, those dates are Saturday, March 21st and Saturday, September 26th. If you are unsure whether your complex receives this service, please call (954) 390-2100.
Commercial customers are not eligible for bulk pickup but they may call Waste Management at 954-974-7500 to obtain pricing if additional garbage service is needed.
The bulk schedule is on the back of every water bill and in every Town Crier.
Bulk trash includes items such as furniture, appliances and other materials not suitable for normal loading into packer-type vehicles. Bulk collection is not intended for hazardous chemical waste, automobile parts, major construction debris, or trash resulting from commercial landscaping or lawn service transported to a residential unit from elsewhere. Also, mirrors, glass table tops, window panes, plate glass, etc., will not be picked up unless they are properly and safely placed in a rigid container to prevent unnecessary accidents. The placing of these items unsatisfactorily at the curb represents a serious threat of injury to employees of Waste Management.
The City asks that residents place bulk items out for pickup only during the designated week. Placing items out too early could result in fines. Especially during hurricane season, it is important to ensure that unsecured materials are not left at the curb any longer than necessary in case a storm arrives.
Additionally, during bulk pick-up week each January, old Christmas trees (without lights, ornaments or tree stands) are picked up and burned at the Waste-to-Energy Plant to create energy.
