Vegetation Collection

Under the current Town of Loxahatchee Groves, solid waste & recycling collection contract, the contract allows for weekly collection of vegetative and bulk waste for each assessed residential property. 

This collection allows for up to 6 cubic yards for residential vegetation and all limbs (other than palm fronds) must be no larger than 6 inches in diameter or 6 ft in length/50 pounds in weight as in accordance with the current Ordinance No. 2019-05.

If a residence is tagged for a pile of Yard Waste that exceeds the allowed amount of 6 cubic yards or 6 inches in diameter or 6 ft in length/50 pounds in weight, you may remove the excess amount of material independently to bring the pile into compliance or contact Coastal Waste & Recycling. A pickup will be scheduled and the entire pile will be removed, but the resident will only be charged for the collection of the excess material at a set rate to all residents of $8 per cubic yard as outline in the Solid Waste Contract. 

If removal of the non-compliant material is not resolved the resident will be put on notice that they must resolve the issue or the Town will schedule the pile to be collected and the property owner will be accessed by the Town for payment. 

Are there any other reasons why my Solid Waste Material/Vegetation pile would be tagged?

Solid Waste Material/Vegetative piles that will be deemed out of compliant with the Ordinance include: 

  • Small loose vegetation items not bagged or containerized. 
  • Tires exceed allowed limit of (2) passenger tires per year 
  • Commercial Generated Non-Residential material. 
  • Non collectible material. Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)

If you are found to be in violation of the Ordinance for any reason, the tagged pile must be removed prior to your next scheduled pickup.
