Palm Coast - Waste Pro, the City of Palm Coast's contracted garbage collection hauler, began new shorter pickup routes Monday morning as part of ongoing efforts to improve service for garbage, yard trash and recyclables in Palm Coast.

Customer pickup days will stay the same. However, the time of day when the pickup is made will change because all routes now have new starting and finishing locations.

Customers are reminded that garbage and recyclables collection in Palm Coast runs from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Garbage must be placed at the curb no later than 6 a.m., or the evening before scheduled pickup, to ensure it's not missed. Waste Pro is unable to return to a route to collect garbage that was put out after that day's collection.

Palm Coast Utility customers are advised to contact Customer Service at customer-service@palmcoastgov.com or 386-986-2360 if Waste Pro misses their pickup. The City works with Waste Pro to resolve all concerns.
