Yard Waste / Composting

A claw truck is part of your collection now. The truck drives each route and picks up large yard waste on your collection day. If for some reason your yard waste is missed, please contact Waste Management at 321-723-4455, palmbayservice@wm.com, or visit their website at www.wm.com.

Guidelines:

Yard waste is collected the same day as your regular trash and recycling. It will be collected from the front of your property, near the street (or curbside). It should be placed in an area where the equipment used will not damage or destroy existing sod, pavement or other ground cover or material.

Small items such as grass clippings, weed remains, and small pieces of brush are required to be placed in containers and should not be placed in bags of any kind. These items however, should not be placed in City issued carts.

Brush, tree limbs, tree trunks, and palm fronds less than six (6) inches in diameter should be cut in lengths of no greater than four (4) feet.
Brush, tree limbs, tree trunks, and palm fronds greater than six (6) inches in diameter should be cut in lengths no greater than two (2) feet.
No item should exceed fifty (50) pounds in weight.
