Yard waste must be loose in the containers, not in plastic bags or in a large paper bag. Yard waste is all the plant material in your yard including fruit and coconuts, not water hoses, etc. The Division of Solid Waste has yard waste stickers available for no charge, you may pick them up at the Utilities Office at City Hall.
Pickup for Large Items
For large amounts of yard waste (for example cutting down a tree) you can call Waste Management Inc, FL or any hauler for an estimate for pickup or haul it to the City of Key West Solid Waste Transfer Station.
