Solid Waste

In October 2011, City of St. Cloud began single-stream recycling curbside collection. Solid Waste Division personnel delivered blue curbside recycling carts to all city residents who are Solid Waste customers. Informational packets were delivered with each cart.

Special Pickups
We collect large items placed at the curb once a week. Charges apply; $10.00 for the first two cubic yards and $5.50 for each additional cubic yard. Charges will be applied to your utility bill as a "special pickup".  You may call 407-957-7289 if you do not know your special pickup day. Place your large items at the curb prior to 7AM on your scheduled pickup day. 

Holiday Schedule
The Solid Waste Division observes three holidays a year - "New Year's Day", "Thanksgiving Day", and "Christmas Day".  If your regular scheduled pickup falls on any of these days, you will not receive collection on these days. The Transfer Station will be closed on these days.
