Garbage Carts: The large 95-gallon cart is used for garbage. All garbage must be inside this cart.

  • It is best to have garbage inside the can in tied plastic bags
  • Garbage should be drained of all liquids, especially used cooking oils.
  • Items not fitting into the cart will require a bulk pick up (Please see section below to learn how to schedule: How do I schedule a Bulk Waste or White Goods Collection?)
  • When placing the cart curbside, place it no further than 2 feet from the street and 3 feet from any obstructions (mailboxes, light poles, basketball hoops, trees, cars, trucks, etc.), with the arrows pointing toward the street and the handle of container facing your house,


Tips for once a week garbage pickup:

  • If you have a garbage disposal, use to eliminate food scraps and liquids.
  • Recycle as much as possible.
  • Avoid the use of plastics
  • Use reusable containers / glassware
  • Learn to repair rather than discard
  • Donate used items to friends, family, or local thrift shop or Goodwill.
  • Reduce throwaway glass bottles and containers.
  • Bag or double bag all waste during summer months when heat produces higher levels of smells and insects
  • Store containers in the shade during the week between collection days
  • Keep the lids closed
  • Consider washing your container out periodically. Pouring a capful of nonhazardous household cleaners will assist in odor control.


What day is my yard waste picked up and what are the specifications?

All yard waste will be picked up on Wednesday . Place yard waste in cans, boxes, bags (no more than 6 plastic bags), or bundles; such containers or bundles not to exceed fifty (50) pounds in weight, and 4 foot in length.


We strongly encourage reducing the use of plastic bags for accumulating yard trash as it cannot be mixed in with this type of waste. We would suggest using any customer-owned containers that were previously used for trash collection for all of your loose yard waste (such as leaves and sticks).


Any yard waste not meeting collection spec above, and not located curbside, will not be picked up.


What day is my recycling pickup? What can be placed in the recycling container?

Recycling will occur for all residents on Wednesday of every week. Only material placed inside the 35-gallon recycling cart will be accepted. Please refer to the lid of the recycling cart to the list of items allowed in the curbside recycling program. It is recommended breaking down all cardboard boxes.


What time do I need to have my garbage, yard waste, recycling curbside?

We ask all waste to be curbside either the night before your service day, or no later than 6:00 am on your collection day.


What happens if my normally scheduled service day falls on a holiday?

Florida Express Environmental only observes the following Holidays every year: Thanksgiving Day; Christmas Day; New Year's Day; Memorial Day; July 4th; & Labor Day. On holiday weeks, there will be a one-day delay for the remainder of the week until pickup has been provided. Your normal scheduled pickup days will resume the next full week.
