Have a GARBAGE question (I mean a question ABOUT garbage!) :)
 
We'll be moving down next month (don't know where yet :D ) and wondering how the garbage pickup situation is in TV. Do they take "ANYTHING" on "garbage day?"

Is there a separate day for trash pickup like old appliances, tons of cardboard from unpacking, old furniture etc etc or do you have to hire your own private WM person?

Basically what do you do when you move in (or out for that matter)?

This site will answer all your garbage questions.

Sanitation Information

Three garbage pickups per week. Either Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday (depending on where you live) for regular trash. Recycling is once a week on a regular pick up day. Wednesday is for lawn and tree stuff throughout TV. Call Friday mornings to schedule pick up of items over 50 pounds or 5 feet in length. Moving boxes are picked up with recycling. Just break them down and leave at end of driveway.

NO GARBAGE CANS in Sumter or Marion Counties. They'll take the can as trash as easily as other items.

Welcome home.

So basically they take anything IF YOU CALL.

Thank you.

Old appliances, furniture, anything with the slightest value, stick it out anytime. It will go!

I was told if it is too large, call. There will be a number in your resident handbook. You have to get it to the curb though as they will not (as I am told) go into your garage or house to get it.

Is "anytime" permitted? I would think that kind of stuff would be "limited" to when it gets put at the curb.

Yea, I wouldn't expect them to come and get it. Once I am a resident I will definitely have to check that out.

352-748-0109 is the number

They pick up trash twice a week based on where you live. Wednesdays they do yard waste.

Ed, they are easy going with the garbage down here. Just make sure you do your best with recycling but they don't have forensic garbage engineer's like the specific NJ town where you come from, they are ball busters unless you pay them or are related to them. Imagine $9000 a year in NJ tax's and they check your garbage. These guys in Florida take care of you and then then you do the rite thing. Good people. It's a whole different world. Come on already. Get the $$$$$$. Get down here while its freezing...Ha 60 degrees. :cold:

Well, everything up here is 99% done (buyer's inspection, C of O, buyer's appraisal, buyer's mortgage approved) last hurdle is fire inspection on Wednesday. Closing is Jan 6 so we should be down by the 9th or 10th. :pray: :pray:

edit: 28 degrees here and can't wait to gtfoh.
