[ARCHIVED] Trash Collection is back to Regular Schedules

City Seal

Trash collection is back to regular schedules.  Waste Management is conducting all collections. 

As a reminder of pre-storm rules, Waste Management reminds you:

Residential Garbage Collection: Garbage is collected one day a week for Key West residents and is incorporated in an individual's property annual tax assessment. 

The City requires all garbage bags to be in a waste bin.  Waste Management provides one bin per household.  Additional containers are available for purchase through the local hardware stores if necessary.  Not putting garbage bags in a waste bin may result in a denial of pickup.   

City Code: City of Key West Code of Ordinances Section 58-31 states containers may not be placed in the City right-of-way before 4 PM the day before collection and must be removed by 8 PM.  It is against City Code to leave containers on the street or sidewalk.

Yard Waste: Once a week, pick up on the same day as all other solid waste from your home.  Yard Waste must be in a container, paper bag, or tied in small bundles with twine less than 40 pounds and limited to 10 containers.  

Pickup for Large Yard Waste Items:  For large amounts of yard waste (for example, cutting down a tree), you can call Waste Management Inc. at 305-296-8297 or any hauler for an estimate for pickup or self-haul it to the City of Key West Solid Waste Transfer Station.
