The City of Fort Walton Beach observes the following holidays. Services are collected accordingly:
Call 850-833-9655 before Thursday at 3 pm to schedule a Friday pick - up. Place large items at the curb (at least four feet away from containers) Thursday evening. This is limited to four cubic yards per household, per month. Anything over the limit is subject to a charge.
To avoid damage to our trucks or your property, please follow these simple guidelines:
To report damaged, lost, or stolen containers, call 850-833-9655. The City of Fort Walton Beach Sanitation Division will replace or repair containers free of charge. Please make sure to empty, wash and place the container at the curbside for repairs or replacement.
Your residential collection services include garbage collection and recycling once per week and yard waste collection once per week. Miscellaneous Household Items are collected on Fridays by request only. Please call 850-833-9655 before 3 pm on Thursdays to schedule a miscellaneous household pickup.
The courtesy notices are used by the drivers to help inform customers about the Collection Rules. The tags are used as reminders about how to place containers and other debris at the curb for ease of collection.
Only use the container(s) provided by the City. All garbage must be placed inside your container, and all yard waste placed curbside.
Containers and yard waste must be placed curbside after 7 pm on the evening before collection day to ensure pickup and removal no later than 7 pm on the evening of collection. Never rely on "usual" collection times to put the container curbside. Routes are not always run by the same driver or in the same order.
Place containers within three feet of the curb with the handle facing towards your home, or away from the curb. Be sure to place your container at least four feet away from any other container, mailboxes, or other obstructions.
