How do I prepare my waste for pickup?

Household garbage is collected on Monday and Thursday throughout the Key. Containers are provided by the Town’s franchise hauler. There are three sizes of the green containers available: 30, 64 and 96 gallons. Plastic bags may also be placed curbside but cannot weigh more than 40 pounds each. Corrugated cardboard boxes should be flattened and placed curbside alongside your garbage. If you should move, the garbage can should remain at the residence.

Recyclables are collected on Monday only. Place recyclables in your single stream cart. A new single stream blue cart will be delivered to you beginning November 3, 2014 and your old dual stream red and blue bins will be recycled. Please use your single stream cart as soon as it arrives. Do not place your recyclables in the green household garbage cart, or in paper bags, plastic bags or cardboard boxes. See Waste Management's list of which items to recycle brochure and the Town's recycle page. If you move, the recycling cart should remain at the residence.

Yard waste is collected on Wednesday only. Put yard waste in reusable cans (not your green or blue carts) or securely tied bags. The cans should be no larger than 32 gallons and yard waste should not stick out over the top of the can. When it’s more practical to bundle, tie the yard waste securely. Cans, bundles or bags must weigh less than 40 pounds, bundles must be 4’ long or less, and 16” or less in diameter. If you have an excessive amount or larger pieces of yard waste, please call Waste Management at (941) 753-7591 to arrange for a special pickup.

Garbage, recyclables and yard waste must not be commingled. All items must be curbside by 7:00 AM. If your pickup is missed, please call the Public Works Department at (941) 316-1988 as soon as you are aware of the missed pickup oar Waste Management at (941) 753-7591.
