Trash pick up is expected to resume on Friday.

New Smyrna Beach

Monday: All regular routes running for garbage, yard waste & recycling. 
Tuesday: No service due to closure of the Volusia County landfill.

Dependent on the storm conditions and timing:
– Tuesday garbage will be picked up on Friday, Sept. 7.  
– Tuesday recycling and yard waste will picked-up on the following Tuesday, Sept. 10.


Due to the potential impacts from Hurricane Dorian a modification has been made to the Labor Day holiday refuse and recycling schedule.

Residents are encouraged not to generate any new vegetative debris. Yard debris/tree limbs should not be placed curbside prior to the storm as these can become projectiles in the high winds, causing damage to homes and vehicles. Debris should not be placed in the roadway, swales, drainage ditches or storm culverts. This could cause storm related flooding issues.

After the storm, debris should be separated into vegetative debris and bulk/construction & demotion/other piles and placed curbside without blocking the road, sidewalk or storm drains. To ensure speedier removal, piles should not be placed directly under power lines to provide collection trucks with boom arms sufficient room to maneuver.

****Please note: For the safety of the Waste Pro employees, trucks will be pulled off the road once the wind reaches 35 MPH sustained winds.
