How is yard waste collected?

For residential bulk yard waste that is about 3 cubic yards (approximately the size of a picnic table) that does not fit inside your provided yard waste container, please contact the City of Cocoa Public Works Department at (321) 433-8770 or e-mail to schedule a pick-up. A pick-up will occur within 10 business days from the receipt of the request. 

If your yard waste is able to fit inside your provided yard waste container, please utilize that first. You may also use your trash container for yard waste if there is no other waste inside that container. Please do not use any other type of can for yard waste as it is automatically collected by the waste truck and is only able to collect that size container. Please do NOT put yard waste in a plastic bag, or yard waste bag. 

To find out your yard waste collection day, visit our interactive collection day map and type in your address.

Do NOT pile yard waste over storm drains or near power lines.
