TRASH: Trash is picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays.
RECYCLING: Picked up on Fridays.
Set your trash out curbside after 6:00 p.m. the night before your collection day. All trash must be set out before 6:00 a.m. the day of collection. Your trash cart should be removed from curbside no later than 7:00 p.m. the day of collection. There is no set time for pickup, only set days. During the holidays and peak season, collection may be later than normal.
There will be no collection on the following three holidays:
- 4th of July
Collection will be next regularly scheduled day. There are no “make-up” days.
Yard waste is picked up on Fridays.
Bulky item pick-ups (white goods; i.e. appliances, furniture, etc.) need to be scheduled 48 hours ahead, and item(s) not placed curbside sooner than 24 hours before a scheduled pickup. Call 239-252-2380 to arrange collection.
Trash collection is unlimited. If all trash does not fit in your cart, please place excess trash in heavy duty trash bags and set alongside your cart. Please be sure to leave enough room between your cart and trash bags to allow for automated collection of the cart. Make sure your carts are at the OPPOSITE side of your driveway than your mailbox to avoid damage to mailboxes during the collection of trash and recycling.
Call Collier Utilities Customer Service, 239-252-2380, to request larger or smaller garbage can. You can also have damaged garbage cans or recycling bins replaced. The number is also good for reporting missed garbage pickups, speeding Waste Management trucks, and any destruction caused by the vendors on garbage pickup day.

Wednesday is Glen Eden’s day for lawn maintenance. Green Acres has two crews that service our development in one day. The homeowner is responsible for the maintenance of the irrigation system on his own property.
IMPORTANT: In case of power failure, there is a backup battery inside your irrigation control box . The ONLY battery to get is a RECHARGEABLE 7.2 volt or 9 volt nickel-metal-hydride battery (Nmh). The correct battery type is important. These batteries have a long life, and are continually recharged in the control box, something an alkaline battery can’t do. One rechargeable Nmh battery will save you from buying and discarding many alkaline batteries. You’ll know when it’s time to change it when there is a power outage and you lose your settings. As a bonus, Nmh batteries are the least harmful to our environment when discarded.
NOTE: Make sure your clock is operating on a schedule compliant with our current water restrictions.
