City of Edgewater To Resume Twice Per Week Trash Pick Up

Effective Monday, July 13th Environmental Services Department Solid Waste Division will be reverting back to twice a week refuse pick up schedule.

Please remember that we will not be picking up bagged and/or contained yard debris with the regular garbage; this will go back to being picked up by the refuse trucks on Wednesdays.  Any loose piles of yard waste will be picked up on a continual route, which can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.

We ask that residents bag as much of their yard debris as possible to be picked up on Wednesday. We appreciate everyone’s patience during these trying times.
