Indian River County has five Customer Convenience Centers located in Fellsmere, Roseland, Winter Beach, Gifford and South of Vero Beach where residents can drop off garbage, recyclables, "Sharps", scrap metal, tires, household hazardous waste, and yard waste at no charge. Construction and Demolition Debris is chargeable and must be brought directly to the Sanitary Landfill. Also, Land Clearing Debris and yard waste such as branches over 3" in diameter and stumps are chargeable and must be brought directly to the Sanitary Landfill. The centers are for residential use only. Businesses are not to use the convenience centers. The Convenience Centers and the Landfill are closed New Year's Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Adoption of Ordinance 87-67 established the Solid Waste Disposal District (a.k.a. SWDD), providing a mechanism for measuring the waste disposal volume at the County's landfill and establishing an assessment program.

In addition to your regular residential curbside recycling material, Customer Convenience Centers accept electronics, household hazardous waste such as cell phone batteries, Styrofoam (from large appliances), motor oil (under 2 gallons), oil-based paint, items containing mercury, tires, and "Sharps" for recycling. Land Clearing Debris and yard waste such as branches over 3" in diameter must be brought to the Main County Landfill. Please remember that when you residentially recycle at the curb you will not receive a bill from the haulers and will reduce the amount of waste you will have to bring to the Convenience Centers or the Landfill. You have the blue cart. . . Roll with us and Recycle!
