Recycle Bins Being Replaced

According to Brevard County Solid Waste Management Department, all unincorporated Brevard areas will be receiving their new recycle bins and trash cans by September 27, 2013. The transition plan is under way.



Carts will be delivered by a delivery crew that "will use box trucks and trailers for delivery to individual addresses," as stated on the Solid Waste Department's website. The guys pulling a long trailer full of the new carts already delivered ours!

If you would like to check on their progress, a delivery report is available on the county's website.





Standard carts will be 64 gallon. You can check the new cart dimensions to see if you would like to change from the standard one automatically delivered to one of the two other options.

According to the FAQ document posted by the Solid Waste Department, "within the first 60 days from the start of service there is no charge to switch out your standard issue cart(s). However, after that there is a $25.00 delivery charge per cart.

Residents can contact Waste Management’s customer service department to request a different size:
North Brevard residents: 321-636-6894
South Brevard residents: 321-723-4455

You may also contact the Brevard County Solid Waste Department 321-633-2042"

So if you think you will need a different size, don't delay and call one of the numbers above.


For residents who already received the new carts, remember that the new carts can only be used starting September 30th. If you put them out before that day, your carts may not get emptied.

Also keep in mind that some of the areas may have a change on collection days. Ours went from Tuesdays/Fridays to Mondays/Thursdays for garbage and Wednesdays to Tuesdays for recycling. Check the stickers attached to your carts to make sure you do not miss your collection.

Recycle Brevard!
