Yard Trash

Routine yard trash is collected once a week on the same day as your garbage and recycling. Any routine yard trash should be placed curbside in plastic lawn bags, in old garbage containers, or in neatly stacked piles.

Routine yard trash is any vegetative matter resulting from residential property lawn and landscaping maintenance including:

  • Shrub and tree trimmings
  • Grass clippings
  • Palm fronds
  • Branches

Any material placed curbside that does not fall within the county guidelines of routine yard trash will be tagged to inform the resident that the county is unable to collect the non-conforming debris, which is the responsibility of the resident to remove. Yard trash does not include:

  • Trees/tree trunks
  • Stumps/logs
  • Root systems
  • Land clearing debris (i.e. rocks, bushes)

For a list of contract haulers to remove non-conforming debris, contact the Waste and Recycling Division at (863) 284-4319.
