Three convenient ways to learn about your bulk pickup day

For oversized items that won't fit in the regular waste collection carts, residents can dispose of bulk waste curbside once-a-month, on the same designated collection day as garbage, recycling and yard waste. With five weeks in both in December and January, please refer to the graphics below to eliminate any confusion:

To find the once-a-month bulk waste collection schedule, which is part of residents' regular service, residents have multiple convenient options:

Phone Support: Residents can also obtain the schedule by calling the Office of Solid Waste at 1-772-871-1775 and pressing #5 during regular business hours.

In-Person Assistance: Residents are welcome to visit City Hall to have a staff member look up their bulk waste pickup day and mark it on a writable magnet to put on a refrigerator. The magnet can be obtained at City Hall, 121 SW Port St. Lucie Blvd., Bldg. A, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (excluding holidays).

Check online: The City's interactive solid waste map incorporates a calendar function, enabling residents to synchronize their pickup days seamlessly with their smartphone and laptop calendars. To enable this feature, follow these easy instructions:

  1. Visit the Waste Collection interactive map
  2. Once the map loads, type in your address in the search bar.
  3. When your address has been located, click "Add to Calendar."

Under Port St. Lucie's contract with FCC Environmental Services LLC, garbage, recycling and yard waste are all picked up once a week on the same day. Bulk waste is picked up once a month on the same day, but the exact day depends on location.

What is bulk waste?

If you have items too large to fit inside your garbage cart, such as furniture, mattresses, large toys, exercise equipment and appliances, then it is considered bulk waste, which is now collected once a month.

How much bulk waste is allowed?

The limit for bulk waste is two (2) cubic yards per month, about the same size as a sofa or a standard size refrigerator.

When should residents put it out?

Residents should place items curbside by 7 a.m. on their pickup day but no earlier than 6 p.m. the evening before collection.

What if a resident can't wait for their bulk waste day?

Residents can drop off yard and bulk waste five days a week at the City's Convenient Drop-off Center at 1501 SW Cameo Blvd. on the corner of Cameo Boulevard and Crosstown Parkway.

This initiative aligns with the City of Port St. Lucie's commitment to providing efficient, resident-friendly services. To learn more about solid waste pickup days and the City's solid waste program, visit www.CityofPSL.com/SolidWaste.
