Green waste is grass, weeds, flowers, leaves, palm fronds, clippings, ivy, floral decorations, branches, Halloween pumpkins, Christmas trees and untreated and non-lead based painted wood. Sod and ice plant are acceptable in small quantities. Click here for more information on green waste.
Do not put plastic trash bags or any other items in these carts. Lawn and gardening services should be notified of this rule. Green waste material must be placed loosely inside the green cart for collection.
EDCO no longer picks up green waste in residents' old green waste containers, as the system is fully automated.
After the initial delivery and upon request, EDCO will provide up to two additional large 95-gallon green waste carts to residents at no charge. For residents who have physical limitations or space constraints at their home, smaller rolling green waste carts will be provided at no cost.
