Brevard County Yard Waste Guidelines

Yard waste is any vegetative matter generated from improved real property such as leaves, grass, pine needles or shrubbery cuttings resulting from the care of lawns or landscape maintenance.  This may include tree trimmings or removal, if done by the homeowner; and must meet the preparation guidelines.  Contractors are responsible for hauling away all yard waste and land clearing.  Such term does not include large quantities of sod, dirt and trash from land clearing or other materials requiring special handling.

Yard waste must meet the following guidelines: 

  • Branches, limbs and palm fronds must be reduced in size not exceeding 4 feet in length, 24 inches in diameter and 50 pounds in weight, separated from other solid waste and placed at your designated collection point.   For larger quantities please call waste management to arrange for pickup at 321- 636-6894
  • Leaves, grass clippings, pine needles or shrubbery cuttings must be containerized in no larger than 40 gallon or less than 5 gallon galvanized metal or durable plastic garbage can. 
  • PLEASE NOTE:    The use of any type of bags (paper or plastic) for yard waste is prohibited. 
  • Set your yard waste at the curb in time for residential collection which begins at 6:00 a.m. and runs through 8:00 p.m. For Sunset Lakes yard waste is picked up on Thursdays.
