QUANTITY GUIDELINES FOR DOORSTEP HAZARDOUS WASTE
How many hazardous waste items do you have for pick-up and how much of each do you have? Waste Pro has set guidelines for the City of Palm Coast's new Doorstep Hazardous Waste collection. As you gather your items, please note the following accepted quantities:
- Fluorescent light bulbs: Minimum 4, Maximum 8
- Used motor oils or antifreeze: Minimum 1 gallon, Maximum 2 gallons
- Paints and supplies; Pool & Household Chemicals: Minimum 2 gallons, Maximum 4 gallons
- Household Cleaners; Pesticides & Fertilizers: Minimum 4 items, Maximum 8 items
- Household Batteries: Minimum 10; Maximum 20
When you call Waste Pro to schedule a pick-up, please indicate the exact quantities of your items. Waste Pro limits these quantities because Federal law regulates the amount of chemicals that a truck can transport.
Items that are not acceptable for collection are gasoline, ammunition, acids, diesels, kerosene, mercury (or items containing mercury) and radioactive materials.
If you have household waste items for pick-up, call Waste Pro at 386-586-0800 to schedule a Saturday date. Items must be placed at your front door or garage door and NOT at the curb. For more information, please contact Customer Service at 386-986-2360.
Beginning January 1, 2007, Waste Pro of Florida became the exclusive solid waste provider for the City of Palm Coast.
The Purchasing & Contract Management Department administers the contract, supervises a customer service representative. Though Waste Pro will be primarily responsible to its customers, the City wants to assure its citizens their interest is being appropriately monitored.

A: No, drivers should also remain the same.
Q: Any change in White Goods Pick-up?

Q: Any changes in bulk trash pick-up?
A: No, bulk trash removal is still the same and is weekly on your second trash day.
Q: Will my yard waste collection and disposal change?
A: Yes, Yard Waste no longer needs to be bundled. However, volume restrictions apply and additional charges are possible whenever your yard waste pile exceeds 4 cubic yards and/or has branches in excess of four feet in length or limbs/branches greater than six inches in diameter. Yard waste piles of this size and weight require a special "claw truck" to be dispatched. Therefore, additional costs associated with a special pick-up are passed on to the customer.
Q: Will my recycling service change?
A: Yes, recycling no longer needs to be sorted in different bins. Recyclables of every type can now be placed together in one bin.
RECYCLE REWARDS PROGRAM
Q: The newsletter in my utility bill indicates that customers will receive one free recycle bin. Is there a charge for more than one?
A: All households/customers may receive one additional bin at no charge (total of two). Any additional bins will be charged to each household in their utility bill. The amount will be consistent with the amount that Waste Pro pays for the bin. This amount is yet to be determined.
Q: When will I receive the new recycle bin?
A: Waste Pro will deliver one new bin to each household prior to June 1, 2012.
Q: Can I use the bins I've always used?
A: Yes, you may still use them, however, in order to be counted in the recycling rewards program you must set out the bin that contains the computer bar code. An electronic reader in the cab of the collection truck reads the strip on the bin and recognizes that you have recycled on that particular day.
Q: How do I receive the computer bar code?
A: You will receive a program packet in the mail. The computer bar code will be in the packet. Simply affix the bar code to the recycle bin that you plan on setting out every time you recycle.
Q: What are the details of the recycling rewards program?
A: Details continue to be finalized. You will receive additional information as determined.
