Residential Recycling

Residential Recycling Program

The City of Brevard contracts with Wastepro for collection of recyclables for residential customers. Please place your recyclables curbside by 7:30 a.m. on your scheduled day in the cart or bin provided to you. The residential recycling fee is $3 per month. Remove lids from bottles and jars. Do not mix household garbage with recyclables. Wastepro will not collect blue bags.


Recycling is collected bi-weekly and a calendar with collections dates is available by contacting Public Works or pick one up at the Water Department.
