Garbage Collection Schedules After Hurricane Irma

The City of Palm Bay has received word from Waste Management that customers who are not picked up at their regular time, or on their regular day, should leave their cans at the curb. Routes continue to run slowly following last week's schedule and any routes that are not completed on time will be picked up the next day.

We will continue to work with Waste Management to keep you updated!

Disaster Debris Removal

Storm debris collection is set to begin September 18, 2017. Please separate your debris and place at the edge of your property before the curb safely away from sidewalks, ditches, utility poles and mail boxes. Do not place debris near a water meter vault, fire hydrant or any other above-ground utility. Only sorted debris piles placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection until further notice.

The City of Palm Bay transitioned to an automated cart program on October 1, 2010. Each residential customer receives a 64-gallon cart for garbage (teal lid) and one 64-gallon cart for single stream recycling (yellow lid). Garbage, recycling and yard waste will be collected once weekly as part of your regular collection service. In alignment with the established statewide recycling goal of 75% by the year 2020, the City of Palm Bay in partnership with Waste Management strive to reduce the amount of household waste by recycling.  However, residential customers can rent an additional cart by contacting Customer Service for $0.50 per month per cart.
