Brevard County Hurricane Garbage and Yard Pickup Schedule

BREVARD COUNTY, Florida --  In preparation for the first possible storm impact in Brevard County this year, Waste Management advises that all services are operating on their normal schedules this week.

Residents who have concerns about trees or limbs that could potentially threaten persons or property are advised to place their trimmings at the curb on their regular collection day only.  WM requests that residents only trim where it could pose an imminent threat in a high wind situation.

Residents are also advised that commercial landscape and tree trimming contractors are required, by Brevard County and municipal ordinances, to haul away any trimmings they generate.  These requirements have been in place for years and are observed by most contractors.  It is critically important in periods where high volumes of yard waste are likely that residents ensure their licensed contractor abides by the ordinance requirements.

Trimmings placed at the curb are required to be cut to the following limits: four feet in length, 12 inches in diameter and no more than 50 pounds per piece.  These requirements are necessary to protect WM collection crews from injury during the collection process, so assistance is appreciated.

Waste Management’s Customer Service Center is available during regular business hours at (321) 636-6894 (north Brevard), (321) 723-4455 (south Brevard), and via live chat online at  Inquiries can also be emailed to
