Dispose of Bulk Waste Legally – It’s Free!
Recently, Key West is seeing a proliferation of huge piles of trash – furniture, appliances, flooring – stack up in the City’s right-of -way.
Dumping is illegal. However, residents can dispose of this bulky waste free of charge. But you must do it legally. Before you put anything at the curb, call Waste Management at 305-296-8297 to schedule a pickup date. You may put the trash out the day before your scheduled pick up.
Waste Management will also explain that you cannot pile furniture and appliances in one huge heap. Each type of waste material requires a different method of pickup.
We urge you to drive around the island and take a look at what’s become of our rights-of-way. It’s up to all of us to keep Key West beautiful. And illegal dumping makes the dumper subject to citation.
