To protect the environment and ensure the safety of our residents, the City of Cocoa does not accept household hazardous waste for curbside collection. These items include solvents, paints, auto fluids and household/pool chemicals. As an alternative, Brevard County Solid Waste conducts hazardous household chemical collection during the year. For more information on household chemical collection, contact Brevard County Solid Waste at 321-633-2042. Also, a suggestion on those handy thin plastic shopping bags. They work great as little trash bags, or to carry lunches to work or school, but please do not put them in the recycle container. Most stores have a receptacle for them near the front of the store. When they get into the recycling, they cause problems with the sorting machinery and mostly just make a mess
Yard waste is collected once per week as part of your standard curbside service. Please put the yard waste in an "Autocart" container (some people may call them "hobos" or "dumpsters"). Please do NOT put greenwaste in a plastic bag, or yard waste bag. To find out your yard waste collection day, call us at 321-433-8770, email us, or fill out the online Request Tracker Form.
If a holiday falls on your regular collection day, you will not receive service that day. Waste Management will resume regular pickup on your next scheduled day.
Almost anything! City of Cocoa residents enjoy Single-Stream Recycling. This means no more sorting, simply put everything in the same container. However, those handy plastic shopping bags can not go into the recycling. Most stores have a recycling container near the front specifically for those bags. Waste Management has all the details of "Single Stream" recycling program on the Waste Management Site
