Q. Who do I call for a missed garbage or recycling collection?

Cart Placement

  • Collection times may vary as routing schedules change, and so it is very important to have all carts curbside by 7 AM on the day of your scheduled pickup. Ensure that it is not blocked or overflowing and that the cart does not contain unacceptable items. 
  • Leave 5' of clearance around your cart and all other curbside services, including other carts or yard debris, vehicles, fences, mailboxes, power poles, etc.
  • Trash should be bagged inside the cart to prevent any windblown litter during the collection processs. 
  • Avoid placing the cart under low hanging tree branches, wires, building eaves or other objects.
  • Please refrain from parking your vehicle in front or near the cart.

If none of these condition apply: Call the Customer Service line at 772-467-3794 or email for more information.

Together with the help of all communities, we can build and sustain a better Fort Pierce.
