City of Melbourne Will Provide Dumpsters to Help With Neighborhood Clean-up, Nov. 8 - Dec. 7
On November 8, the City of Melbourne will be temporarily placing dumpsters at the Joseph N. Davis Community Center (2547 Grant Street) that residents may use to dispose of large items, such as damaged fencing, furniture and old tires. The dumpsters will be available for use until December 7.
The City is providing the dumpsters in response to numerous complaints about dumping along the side of the roadways in south Melbourne’s neighborhoods and to offer local residents a convenient way to dispose of large items that are not picked up as part of their regular waste collection service.
The dumpsters are intended for bulk items like pressure-treated wood, furniture or other large items that residents would otherwise need to transport to the Cocoa landfill. One dumpster will be set aside exclusively for tires and the other may be used for any other large item except for yard debris. (Waste Management collects yard debris as part of its regular service.)
The dumpsters are for use by City of Melbourne residents only; no contractors may use these dumpsters.
