Why didn't Waste Management pick up my waste?
Posted on May 10th, 2011

Did you know that Waste Management can’t dump your trash container if there are limbs, fronds, or other yard waste sticking out of it? We found that out the hard way when we put a bunch of branches in our trash container because we didn’t want to cut them up.
Yard waste is to be disposed of on yard waste pick-up days (Tuesday) only. In Spring when everyone is maintaining landscaping or after a hurricane, WM may not come on the day scheduled; however, they will come the next day or as soon as possible. If your neighbor’s yard waste is still out too, just leave yours out for next day pickup.
Was your neighbor’s picked up but not yours? Check and see if you met the yard waste requirements: small tree branches may not exceed 6 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter. Yard waste cannot include large branches, trees or other bulky non-bagged material; treated wood; or debris resulting from tree removal or land clearing. You can’t use your trash container for yard waste; it is too heavy and bulky. The waste has to be easy to access – it can’t be near mailboxes, cars, or other objects. Yard waste cannot be picked up as bulk waste on bulk pickup day either.
