What items cannot be picked up?

To protect the environment and ensure the safety of our residents, the City of Cocoa does not accept household hazardous waste for curbside collection. These items include solvents, paints, auto fluids and household/pool chemicals. As an alternative, Brevard County Solid Waste conducts hazardous household chemical collection during the year. For more information on household chemical collection, contact Brevard County Solid Waste at 321-633-2042. Also, a suggestion on those handy thin plastic shopping bags. They work great as little trash bags, or to carry lunches to work or school, but please do not put them in the recycle container. Most stores have a receptacle for them near the front of the store. When they get into the recycling, they cause problems with the sorting machinery and mostly just make a mess
