Information on residential solid waste (household garbage, bulk and yard waste) collection in the City of Deltona:
Residents may see three (3) trucks on garbage day: An automated truck will pick up and dump contents of the Waste Pro toter and a rear loader will pick up additional cans and bulk items. All Materials meant for collection (household garbage, bulk or yard waste) must be at the curb by 6 a.m. on the proper pick-up day and removed no later than 9 p.m. on collection day. Service is one day a week, Monday through Friday. Discover your collection day, by clicking on the maps on the menu located to the left on this page. Do not place bins or bulk items within three feet of objects such as mailboxes, parked vehicles, fire hydrants, trees or poles.

Household Garbage: The City of Deltona contracts with Waste Pro to provide the residential collection of solid waste. Residents are provided a 96-gallon toter for the once per week collection of household garbage. New residents who do not have a Waste Pro toter, should call (386) 574-0723.You may have additional containers that will be picked up but they must have two handles and a lid, for wheeled containers there is a weight limit of 100 lbs. For non-wheeled containers they cannot weigh more than 50 lbs. All garbage must be contained in bags and may not be loose in the container. If you have loose household waste in the container and that waste when dumped flies everywhere or the bags break– the contractor will make every effort to pick-up and clean the area. If there are repeated occurrences the contractor may report that to the City’s consultant so that an acceptable solution can be attained.

Bulk Trash: Including sinks, countertops, doors, shelving, and fencing may also be placed at the curb for pick-up. This includes white goods like stoves – also mattresses, furniture, etc.

Construction debris: is not considered bulk waste, remodeling projects will not be picked up unless scheduled and additional fees will apply. However, residents may contact Waste Pro (386)574-0723.

Yard Waste: This includes grass, leaves, shrubs and tree trimmings only. Each residential property is entitled to place up to fifteen bags of yard waste or bundled piles of limbs. Palm fronds and limbs may be neatly stacked and are required to be bundled (no piles will be picked up).

Limbs should not exceed five feet in length, six inches in diameter or fifty pounds. All yard waste should be properly prepared in bags, bundled and tied. Excessive yard waste requires a special pick up and fees may apply. Please do not mix yard waste with your household waste.

Recycle: As of Feb. 1, 2019, the City of Deltona suspended weekly residential recycling pickup. The primary factor is the decreased market demand for raw recyclable material, such as plastics, glass, and paper. These materials are no longer being purchased by processing countries, such as China. All discarded materials set out curbside will be taken to the Volusia County landfill. Please note that the residential recycling bins are the property of Waste Pro. However; we are asking that residents hold on to them at present. The City of Deltona is carefully watching the marketplace, and hope that the program can be revived in the future.

Other Materials:
Tires:
You may place up to eight passenger and truck tires per year at the curb for pick-up. Please call Waste Pro, (386) 574-0723 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to schedule a pick up.Oversize truck tires require a special pickup and additional fees may apply.
Motor Oil: The State of Florida does not permit motor oil in any landfill. Do not put motor oil in with your garbage. Auto parts stores such as Advance Auto Parts and Autozone have collection sites for disposal of used motor oil. Please call Volusia County Recycles, (386) 943-7889, to locate a nearby facility.
Lead Acid Batteries: The State of Florida does not permit the disposal of any automotive and lead-acid batteries. Retail outlets where you purchase your new battery are required to accept and dispose of your old battery.
