Residents who live in unincorporated areas of Volusia County are provided waste services through Volusia County's Solid Waste and Recycling Division.
Residents are charged for service by an annual $210 non-ad-valorem assessment per residential unit.
Volusia County contracts with Republic Services to provide garbage collection to residents living in single-family homes or multi-family dwellings with no more than four units.
Single-family homes on more than 10 acres are required by law to provide their own proper disposal of waste and may choose to participate in the county's subscription services by calling the Solid Waste and Recycling Division at:
386-257-6021 Daytona Beach
386-943-7889 West Volusia
386-423-3862 New Smyrna Beach
All materials meant for collection (household garbage, recycling or yard waste) must be at the curb by 6 a.m. on the proper pick-up day.
Garbage pickup is once a week in the 96-gallon cart that is provided free of charge. Materials must be enclosed in this secure container and placed within 10 feet of the curb by 6 a.m. on the designated pick-up day. The hauler has until 8 p.m. to collect the waste.
Collection service allows each residence to place four bulky items curbside for collection every week. These items include appliances, furniture, passenger vehicle sized tires (with or without the rims), swing sets, water heaters, other metal junk & “bulky” items. Simply place any combination of up to 4 items at the curb on your normally scheduled garbage collection day. “Bulky” items will be collected no later than the end of the calendar day following the designated day of collection. No prior notification is necessary.
Yard waste is picked up at the curb and mulched at the landfill for reuse. The equivalent of four 32-gallon containers or eight plastic bags per household can be picked up each week.
Please DO NOT place yard waste in your 96-gallon cart.
Please DO NOT mix yard waste with any other types of waste.
Appliances and furniture
Up to four large or "bulky" items can be placed out for collection with your regular household garbage per week. This would include appliances, furniture, passenger vehicle sized tires (with or without the rims), swing sets, water heaters, other metal junk & “bulky” items. Simply place any combination of up to 4 items at the curb on your normally scheduled garbage collection day. “Bulky” items will be collected no later than the end of the calendar day following the designated day of collection.furnitureYour regular route driver will notify dispatch that there are large items out for collection and a flatbed truck will collect them before the end of the following day. No prior notification is necessary.
Note: A great way to recycle unwanted items still in good shape is by taking the item to an area thrift shop. For more information, see what you can recycle.
