The City of Inverness works with Waste Management and GFL for solid waste removal. If you are a resident within the city, payment of garbage and yard waste removal will be billed to each occupied address. Each residence has one household garbage pick-up day, one yard waste removal day, and one recycle pick-up day per week, with the exception of holiday closures of the landfill.
Holiday Trash Schedule
There will be no collection on the following Holidays:
- Memorial Day
- July 4th
- Labor Day
- Veterans Day
- New Year's Day
During a holiday week, if a holiday falls on your residential service day, all services (including recycle and yard waste) will be performed the following day and all subsequent service days will be moved to the day after your normal service day for the remainder of the week.
The City of Inverness now provides curbside recycling for residences! Residents must use the green 64 gallon recycling cart provided by the City. The recycling cart has a yellow lid. Check the lid for what items are able to be recycled. Please place your recycling cart curbside on Tuesday night. Pick-up will be on Wednesday for the entire city. If you have any questions, or do not have a recycling cart at your residence, please call the Public Works Department at 352-726-2321.
Yard Waste will be collected on Wednesdays every week. Please make sure that you place your yard waste at the curbside the night before the scheduled day of collection and that it is in an appropriate yard waste container or cut to the appropriate size and placed neatly curbside.
- Small yard waste materials (i.e. leaves, grass clippings, pine needles, materials with thorns, small branches) must be bagged, boxed or put into a container.
- Large yard waste materials should be neatly stacked if not in a container/bag.
- Branches or limbs are not to exceed six-foot in length with no piece larger than six inches in diameter, and cannot exceed two cubic yards in size.
- All bundles or containers may not exceed fifty pounds.
- All yard waste material should be put at the curb for pick up. Do not put yard waste on the street or vacant lot. Community piles are not acceptable.
We understand that you may desire to have large piles removed immediately or that you may have materials larger than the size limits of our standard collection service. In this case, we will be happy to provide you a quote for these services.
If we can be of further assistance, you may contact the Public Works department at 726-2321.

Have you ever put something sharp in your garbage, forgotten about it and then pushed down on the trash to get just that extra inch of space you need......and OUCH!! It's likely you won't do that again!
The service people who haul your trash however, do not have the benefit of knowing what has been placed in your waste containers. Hazards such as needles, pool chemicals, flammables or irritant materials are just some of the unknowns that waste collectors face IF hazardous waste is disposed with daily household waste. And, as you might guess, if the service person is injured on the job, medical costs are incurred which ultimately are reflected in increased prices for services. A vicious circle.
And, more commonly known, are the dangers to the environment of poisons improperly disposed which leach into soils and waters. So how can you help? By being knowledgeable of what is hazardous waste and dispose of it properly.
Identifying Hazardous Waste
Prohibited waste not to be included in your household trash:
- Muriatic acid and chlorine used in swimming pools
- Anything labeled toxic, poison, corrosive, flammable, or irritant
- Biomedical Infectious Waste, particularly used hypodermic needles
- Automotive batteries
In addition to the above, Southwest Florida Water Management District has identified additional waste which is harmful to the environment.
Hazardous waste can be disposed of at the Citrus County Landfill. For more information on handling and disposal, visit the Citrus County Solid Waste Management website.
