Household garbage should be bagged and placed inside your 95 gallon containers. The containers must not be overfilled so that the lids can be securely closed. Ordinary trash, small amounts of yard trimmings, and non-recycleables items are to be co-mingled with your household garbage. No construction debris, paint, chemicals, flourescent bulbs or other hazardous materials should be placed in the containers.
Please do not place trash curbside for collection. If you place your trash at the curb, you risk being assessed a fee for violating the Town's ordinance. Paid gardeners, or other lawn maintenance personnel are required to take the yard debris away, not leave it for the Town to collect. Remember that the Town will not pick-up construction debris.
Special pickups of bulk trash items such as furniture, mattresses, box springs, bed frames, couches, chairs and other large household items are only done on Thursdays. Items with glass may NOT be included. You must call Town Hall at 305-866-6241 to schedule a pick-up of home appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, washer/dryers, dishwashers, etc. Refrigerator, freezer, and oven doors MUST BE REMOVED for the safety of others.
