Temporary Change for Waste Pro Pickup Effective September 1

August 31, 2023

Waste Pro will begin picking up trash an hour earlier, beginning Friday, Sept. 1. Please place all items for collection curbside by 5 a.m. to avoid missing any collection vehicles.

City Council approved Ordinance 235-23, temporarily modifying Waste Pro’s collection schedule and noise exemption from Sept. 1 to Oct. 31, 2023. Due to unprecedented temperatures and heat index in Southwest Florida, Waste Pro requested that their drivers begin their collection routes one hour earlier at 5 a.m.

Trash totes should be placed curbside no earlier than 5 p.m. the day before your scheduled collection day. Carts should be five feet away from your mailbox, trees, fire hydrants, cars, sprinkler heads, or any other damageable property.
