Garbage container with green top is for household waste and it is picked up Tuesday and Friday mornings. Pick up is usually early morning and the container can be put roadside the night before scheduled pick up.
Garbage container with yellow top is for recycling items and it is picked up Thursday. Pick up times vary but the container can be put roadside the night before scheduled pick up.
Garbage container with green top can also be used for yard waste that picks up on Thursday morning. Pick up is usually early morning and before the recycling pick up that same day.
Alternate waste container can be used for yard waste and should not be any larger than the Waste Management containers. Yard debris can also be cut to less than 48 inches in length and left on the apron of the drive way or in the grass easement next to the drive way.
DO NOT put waste containers or yard debris on the concrete strom pads that contain storm water access manholes or in our street gutter areas. The automated waste trucks can accidentally damage the concrete drain structure when picking up waste cans on those concrete manhole pads. Our street gutters drain into the storm water drains that flow from detention pond to pond, finally emptying into the Indian river. Putting yard waste in the gutters endangers the patency of our storm water drains - causing clogging, backup and possible flooding during heavy rain events.
Special pick up - Waste Management must be called and a special pickup scheduled for any items that will not fit inside a container or yard debris that is not in the specifications as described above.
**Reminder to check the holiday schedule pick up for Sunset Lakes and Island Estates. If a scheduled pick up day falls on a holiday, Waste Management usually does not “make up” that scheduled collection.
**Note: If owners engage a commercial service to trim trees or shrubs, owners are responsible to make sure they follow Brevard County Ordinance and remove those cuttings from the community at the time of the trimming. They should NOT be left in the yard, easement, gutter or street.

Recycling Information Link:
Reclaim water is provided by the Brevard County Sykes Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant located across Courtney Parkway from Sunset Lakes. All homes in the community have reclaim water to be used for watering purposes. There is an isolation valve on each property usually located within 10-12 feet of the road. Look for an etched "R" on the curb to help locate the valve. Homeowners can close this valve as needed for sprinkler maintenance, broken sprinkler lines/heads, etc.
Reclaim Water Pressure
Water pressure at each property is typically between 25 and 35 psi. On occasion, the pressure may drop below this or be zero for various reasons including wastewater plant maintenance or consumer demand (the plant supplies North Merritt Island from 528 to Pine Island Rd.) Adjusting sprinkler times may compensate for low pressure due to demand but the County requirement is DO NOT WATER LAWNS BETWEEN 10 AM AND 4 PM due to evaporation. In addition, homes should be watered on even/odd days based on the house/address number. It is also recommend to use a sprinkler timer/controller that compensates for rain days so you're not overwatering your lawn which can cause fungi, excess weeds, and suffocation of the grass.
Contact information for the Sykes Creek plant is 321-455-1338.
Contact information for the Brevard County Utility Services Reuse Hotline is 321-637-5477, option 2.
The Board and Property Manager maintain the common area irrigation system. Each homeowner is responsible for their own irrigation system and the county maintains the other areas of the system including all isolation valves upstream of the individual properties and common areas.
