Regular Pickup Schedule
Residential curbside collection is provided one (1) time per week. Your collection day is based on your location.
All three (3) Residential services (Garbage, Recycle and Yard Waste) are collected on the same day in Cape Coral. All services start at 6:00 am so all items for collection need to be curbside by 6:00am. Each of the three (3) services are collected by a different truck and may be collected at any time after the 6:00am start time. This means that there is one (1) truck that collects nothing but the Brown Garbage cans, One (1) truck that collects nothing but the Green Recycle cans and one (1) truck that collects nothing but the Yard Waste.
Extra garbage that does not fit in the brown garbage can may be placed out for collection in plastic bags set next to the can. Each bag cannot weigh more than fifty (50) pounds and be stacked NEATLY at the curb.
Remember to keep a three (3) foot clearance between and around each can for collection and that the wheels and handle are to face the house. Please remember to also keep at least a five (5) foot clearance from mailboxes, trees, parked cars, etc.
