The city of Clearwater offers a once-a-week collection for yard waste and bulk items.
Yard waste/bulk debris should not be placed at the curb more than 24 hours prior to your service day.
Debris must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of your regular service. The Solid Waste trucks are on scheduled routes, and drivers cannot return if your items are not set out according to the listed guidelines.
Yard waste/bulk must be placed free from all obstructions:
- Overhead wires
Yard waste and junk debris should be kept separate.
Smaller junk items should be bagged or boxed:
Raw garbage will not be picked up outside of the black garbage barrel.
Additional guidelines for yard waste collection:
- Yard waste should be leaves and grass clippings that are either boxed or bagged (not to exceed 50 lbs.).
- Tree limbs/brush should be cut into 4-foot lengths and bundled.
- Bag uncontaminated twigs, loose leaves and grass or put in non-city garbage cans (up to 32 gallon) and place curbside
- For large materials, cut limbs and stumps over 4 inches in diameter into lengths of 4 feet or less and stack curbside, clear of obstructions. Call (727) 562-4920 to arrange for the removal of these and other very bulky yard waste piles.
The city will pick up materials cut and gathered by the property owner only. Any debris collected from tree trimming companies or landscapers must be removed from the property by that company/person, as per city ordinance.
