Refuse Collection Schedule


Refuse is collected in Arbor Trace one day a week. Household waste, recyclables and lawn waste are collected on Tuesdays.

The presence of waste containers and lawn debris is unsightly but necessary. To minimize the number of days waste is present at the curb, the Board of Directors has adopted a Refuse Disposal Policy.

Refuse containers and lawn waste shall not be placed at the curb until the evening prior to a scheduled pick up or the morning of the pickup.


Curbside Recycling

Indian River County provides residential curbside recycling collection for all residents. Recycling services are included and paid for through your Solid Waste Assessment. Therefore, with or without garbage service, recycling is picked up curbside at no additional cost to you. IRC encourages our residents to Recycle.

If you decide not to subscribe for residential garbage collection, you may put out recyclables curbside for collection and you won’t receive a bill for this service.

Put bin within 5 feet of the curb on your collection day (Tuesday).
