How is garbage collection done in Sarasota County? Is it private, or does the town do it? Especially in Englewood. Thanks!

Some of Englewood is in Charlotte County and some in Sarasota County. Here are the links to the county solid waste departments.

Hey, do you happen to know how many garbage cans you're allowed? It doesn't say in the site.

Sarasota County contracts with Waste Management for once a week pick up of trash, recyc, yard waste. Property owner pays for the service as a non ad valorem fee on their tax bill, currently $160 a year.

we have once a week pick up. typically we put out 2 cans of trash, 2 containers of recycling and 4 cans of yard clippings. i have seen a half dozen cans of trash and as many as 30 cans of yard waste along with a huge stack of cut and tied up wood. they also take used motor oil. you put that out alongside the recycling with the bottle marked used oil. and scrap metal, thats gone within a half hour of putting it out.
