Trash collection is back to normal schedules. All collections are being conducted by Waste Management.. As a reminder of pre-storm rules, Waste Management reminds you:
Residential Garbage Collection: Garbage is collected one day a week for Key West residents and is incorporated in an individual's property annual tax assessment.
The City requires all garbage bags to be in a waste bin. Waste Management provides one bin per household. Additional bins are available for purchase through the local hardware stores if necessary. Not putting garbage bags in a waste bin may result in denial of pickup.
City Code: City of Key West Code of Ordinances Section 58-31 states containers may not be placed in City right-of-way before 4 p.m. the day before collection and must be removed by 8 p.m. the day of collection. It is against City Code to leave containers on the street or sidewalk.
Yard Waste: Once a week, pick up on the same day as all other solid waste from your home. Yard Waste must be in a container, paper bag, or tied in small bundles with twine less than 40 pounds and limited to 10 containers.
Pickup for Large Yard Waste Items: For large amounts of yard waste (for example, cutting down a tree), you can call Waste Management Inc. at 305-296-8297 or any hauler for an estimate for pickup or self-haul it to the City of Key West Solid Waste Transfer Station.
