Garbage is collected one day a week for Key West residents and is incorporated in an individual's property annual tax assessment.
The City requires all garbage bags to be in a waste bin. Waste Management provides one (1) bin per household. Additional bins are available for purchase through the local hardware stores if necessary. Not putting garbage bags in a waste bin may result in denial of pickup. For more information, call Waste Management.
City of Key West Code of Ordinances Section 58-31 states containers may not be placed in City Right-of-Way before 4:00 PM the day before collection and must be removed by 8:00 PM the day of collection. It is against City Code to leave containers on the street or sidewalk.
