Garbage & Recycling Schedule Change for the Beach Area is this week

The Town will shift to the SUMMER garbage and recycling collection schedule on Wednesday (May 17).  This change affects the BEACH AREA ONLY:  OCEAN DR., BEACH DR., DOLPHIN, PELICAN & KINGS LYNN.

All other areas will remain on the same YEAR-ROUND schedule of pickup.

The summer collection schedule for the Beach Area runs May 17th through September 30th, 2017.

GARBAGE PICKUP:  Twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturday (all areas except Ocean Drive, which is Tuesday & Saturday).

RECYCLING PICKUP:  Every Saturday.

And as a reminder of the Polycart ordinance regulations for Beach Drive, Ocean Drive, Dolphin Drive and Kings Lynn:

  • PLACEMENT OF CARTS: Place carts at the curb no earlier than 2 p.m. the day prior to collection but at least by 6 a.m. on the scheduled day of collection.  Carts must be pulled back to the house or returned to the cart rack by 7 p.m. on the day of collection.
  • ALTERNATIVE DISPOSAL OPTIONS: The Town has provided a garbage dumpster and several recycle containers located on SE 46th for use by property owners and visitors in the affected area who may be leaving town between pickup days.
