Free dumpsters for residents' use will be at Joseph N. Davis Community Center, Nov. 18-Dec. 17
On November 18, 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 17.
This is part of an annual effort to prevent 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.)
This program is for the exclusive use of City of Melbourne residential properties and residents only. Businesses and/or contractors may not use these dumpsters.
Many thanks to Waste Management for providing the dumpsters free of charge and to Brevard County for waiving fees at the landfill. Because of their sponsorship of this program, the City of Melbourne is able to offer this service free of charge.
