Island residents urged to choose trash cart size for automated collection
The third phase of residential automated trash collection is coming to the City of Venice. Neighborhoods on the island of Venice will be included. Residents living in this area can click on a link at the top of this website's homepage to choose the size trash cart they would like – 35 gallon, 65 gallon or 95 gallon. They can also click here.
Residents living on the island must choose their cart size by Oct. 15, 2018. After that date, they will automatically receive the 95-gallon cart. Twice weekly trash collection will continue. Pictures and dimensions of each cart size can also be viewed online. Residents are asked to consider choosing the 95-gallon cart, since all trash must be inside the cart for collection. Residents should fill out the online form with their name, address, contact information and cart size choice, then click submit.
For more information, call Venice Public Works at 941-486-2422. If you choose option #9 when you call, you can leave a voice mail with your size choice and contact information.
