Trash Collection

Curbside trash collection - is paid as a special assessment on the property owner's annual tax bill for Monroe County residential properties; businesses must arrange for service with local providers:

The Monroe County Recycle Brochure has a description of the local service areas and the contact numbers for your neighborhood. Call the appropriate company to determine your trash / yard waste collection schedule.

Trash cans must not exceed 32 gallons in capacity, and should not weigh more than 50 pounds when full. Lids should be secured if left out at night or prior to collection days. If animals or weather scatter trash from your cans, you are responsible for cleaning the area within 24 hours of collection times; litter causes environmental degradation and hazards to wildlife. Trash cans should be brought in from the curb after collection.

Yard waste must be less than 4 inches in diameter and 4 foot lengths; it can be placed loose in cans, or cut to 4’ lengths and bundled. Cans or bundles should not exceed the 50 pound limit.
