Up to 25 cubic yards of bulk trash is collected every two to three weeks depending on the season. The Bulk Pickup Team sweeps East to West on a route through the Village. During the spring and summer months, the time between trash pick-ups is normally greater due to the increase in the amount of tree and yard debris that is put out for collection.
Each day the Sanitation Division will designate an area for Bulk Pick-up. The Sanitation Division will work to complete pick-up in that area on the designated day however due to weather, mechanical or other issues the Sanitation Division may not complete pick-up or may change the pick-up area for that day.
All household and yard debris needs to be placed into two separate piles in your alley (or curbside if you have no alley) by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day.
For questions regarding bulk pick-up, please call (305)795-2210, Monday - Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m..
Garbage, recycling and bulk pick-up collection is made on all scheduled days, including holidays except Christmas Day, December 25th.
