We like the idea of recycling. However, our experience has shown, recycling bins for rental properties are creating more problems than solutions. Here is why: As soon as something gets into these bins which the hauler determines not belonging there, the hauler will leave the full bin behind.

So we have had multiple instances when guests found full recycling bins right after their arrival. Some times, those bin already attracted racoons. I can say: It was a total MESS. Every time.

So we are discouraging the use of recycling bins for rental properties. If you find recycling instructions or bins at properties, please, please disregard them.

In Bradenton, and in Manatee County, recycling is not mandatory.

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


Multiple community Dumpsters are located on property accessible from to the parking lots. It’s somewhat hidden behind vinyl fences. We do not have specific info on pickup dates, but that’s not needed anyways.
