Details about Bulk Trash Collection
Bulk items should be placed at or near the same location where your regular garbage is collected by 7:00 AM on the day of your bulk collection service. Ensure your garbage cart can still be collected, as the cart should have a clearance of three (3) feet on each side.
Do not place bulk items near overhead obstructions, trees, mailboxes, or automobiles. Do not place bulk items inside commercial container enclosures, in front of commercial containers, behind gates, or in any manner that would limit the regular garbage service you receive. Items not picked up on your collection day will be picked up the following day.
If you have any questions regarding the placement of bulk trash items, please contact Republic Services at 954-583-1830.

Think Before You Throw - Consider Donating Items
Help those in need, keep items out of the waste stream, and get a tax deduction. Several national organizations will even pick-up directly from your residence - you don't have to wait for bulk pick-up day!
There are many local, well-established charitable organizations that readily accept donated items. Don't forget pets - many pet shelters are in need of sheets and towels on a regular basis.
For more information, please call the City of Weston Public Works Service Center at 954-385-2600.
