On April 1, 2020, the City of New Smyrna Beach and their contracted hauler Waste Pro will begin providing solid waste collection services to unincorporated areas within the greater New Smyrna Beach area. This change in service provider is as a result of an agreement executed between the City of New Smyrna Beach and Volusia County in 2013 referred to an Interlocal Service Bounty Agreement.
Beginning April 1, 2020, residents in the Interlocal Service Boundary area will have garbage, bulk items, recycling and yard trash collected by Waste Pro.
