Trash / Recycling

Please put your trash out regularly.
Please don’t leave everything until the last day, since the next guest might have some trash as well before the next pickup.

Trash days

Most properties have Trash days marked in the garage. If not, simply watch out when your neighbors put the cans out.

If you are within Bradenton City limits (big green trashcan with City logo outside), trash days are Tuesday and Friday. Otherwise you are in unincorporated Manatee County and trash days are Monday and Thursday. However, this may vary.

We like the idea of recycling and are used to it since our origin is from Europe. However experience has shown, recycling bins for rental properties create more problems than solutions. As soon as something gets into these bins which the hauler determines not belonging there, the hauler will leave the full bin behind creating sanitary issues.

So we have had several instances when guests found full recycling bins right after their arrival which were not taken by the hauler. Often times items were added by people walking by or guests simply followed their home town rules for recycling which differed from local rules. Since this is highly inconvenient for you, the next guest and a perfect attraction for rodents, we discourage the use of recycling bins for rental properties. If you find any recycling instructions or bins at properties, please, please disregard them.

In Bradenton as well as in Manatee County recycling is not mandatory.

—–> We recommend not using recycling bins because it might cause problems for you and / or the next guests.

So in order to get you the most convenient experience for your stay, please use the provided trash cans for all trash and make sure the lid (if one is there) is closed.
