 CODE COMPLIANCE INITIATIVE

BULK TRASH PICKUP

The City of Lake Worth contracts with Waste Connections to offer our citizens a once a month bulk trash pickup for their convenience.

Just a friendly reminder pickup is only once a month.  Residents must make sure that their items are out at the curb by 7:00 am no earlier than the 20th day of the month.  Pickup will start the last full week of each month. The truck will go down each street only once picking up bulk trash piles.  Once the truck has made its way down your street it will not be back around, so it is imperative that you have your items out on the 20th (but not before)

The City has experienced a high volume of bulk trash lately and it is becoming more and more frequent that residents are putting these items out before the 20th of the month.  The Code Compliance Office is noting these addresses and sending out one (1) warning postcard, if bulk is put out early after the initial warning, the resident will be cited.  Please do your part to help keep our community clean and only set items out for pickup at the appropriate times.

HELPFUL TIPS TO ENSURE YOUR BULK TRASH IS PICKED UP

  • Make sure all items are placed at the curb by 7:00 am on the 20th of the month.
  • Please place items neatly at the curb, bundled if applicable so that items may be picked up quickly and efficiently.
  • Do not put bulk trash items under utility/power lines as the bulk truck will not be able to get under those wires to remove the pile.
  • Do not park on the street and/or block bulk trash piles with vehicles, if the pile is not easily accessible it will not be picked up.
  • Do not put construction materials or Hazardous Waste items out for pick up in your pile as these items may be left.Such items include fecal material, oil sludge, and any radioactive, pathological, toxic, acidic, or volatile materials or other hazardous or improper waste, to include rubber, tires, oil, dirt or rock and steel shavings. Hazardous Waste shall include any waste deemed hazardous by the Environmental Protection Agency or any other applicable governmental agency or authority or any applicable subdivision thereof.
