RULES & REGULATIONS FOR AUTOMATED SERVICE
ONE CAN per household: If you need a different size can, other than what was provided at the initiation of the program, you may purchase it yourself (at Home Depot or Lowes etc.) and it will be serviced as long as it is serviceable by our equipment. Any can provided by the City of WPB remains the property of the City and cannot be kept as a spare or taken by the homeowner if their house is sold. TOTER is one acceptable brand.
The collection container must be located at least FIVE (5) feet away from mailboxes, trees, recycle bins, bulk items or any other structure. Placing the recycle bins on the opposite side of the driveway is recommended. The lids of your containers cannot be tied or bungied, and the bar of the can (not the handle) must be facing the street with the wheels facing the house.
All waste must be in bags and fit inside of the container. NO BAGS ON TOP OF or ALONG SIDE OF CAN Waste cannot be placed in the can in such a way as to prevent it from falling out when being tipped into the truck. IF A VEHICLE IS BLOCKING THE CAN, IT CANNOT BE SERVICED.

The City of WPB will provide the service of removing bulk items such as furniture, mattresses box springs, etc. on your yard waste day only. Previously, your regular service truck picked up all non-contaminated, non-Freon containing bulk items. The automated service truck will not be picking up these items but the driver will make the arrangements for bulk items to be removed on your yard waste day. As before, Freon containing items such as refrigerators, freezers, air-conditioners, etc. must be put out on the day for which you receive vegetative waste pick-up. No vegetation is to be mixed with bulk items. The above mentioned Freon containing items are the only items to be placed next to your vegetation pile. Large quantities of boxes (i.e. from a move in) will be removed as bulk on your yard waste day if you have called to alert us ahead of time. The boxes must be empty, broken down, and tied as compactly as possible. Any packing material (i.e. packing peanuts, packing pillows, paper, styrofoam, etc..) must be secured in bags.
NO CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL OF ANY KIND WILL BE SERVICED. Regulations that govern your local landfill consider construction material contamination and the fees associated with disposing of it are higher. Examples of construction material are cabinets, sinks toilets, roofing, fencing, wood, concrete, drywall, etc.
All construction material generated by a contractor must be disposed of by that contractor. All construction material generated by do-it-yourself projects must be disposed of by the homeowner. This material can be delivered to the Solid Waste Authority’s landfill located on N Jog Rd or any SWA permitted facility. Call 561 697-2700, visit www.swa.org or call 561 822-2056 for other alternatives.
Should a special pick-up be needed (for waste quantities that exceed 4’ X 4’ X 9’ or for items not allowed in the regular pick-up) please call us for arrangements at 561 822-2056. THERE IS A FEE FOR SPECIAL PICK-UPS.
