After the success of the initial phase of the Jordan Street Waste Management Pilot Program,
which involved Public Works creating a trash containment and pickup center in the Jordan
Street Parking Lot, the City is moving forward with the second phase: installing sub-grade
dumpsters in the parking lot.
The City will install three subgrade dumpsters in the southwest corner of the parking lot, where
the existing trash containment and pickup center is located. One dumpster will be used for
recycling, one for corrugated cardboard, and one for other solid waste.
The second phase of the pilot program will last for one year and then the City will evaluate the
program and decide on the future. Over the course of the year, the City and Heart of Brevard
will monitor how often and when the dumpsters reach capacity through the different seasons.
In addition, we welcome your feedback on usability and issues as they may arise via the
feedback section on the City’s website: https://www.cityofbrevard.com/jordanstreet.
WHEN WILL CONSTRUCTION BEGIN?
The construction of the new zone for the dumpsters will begin on October 1, 2021, and will be
completed by late November 2021. The new dumpsters will be located in the area that contains
the existing trash collection area and screened dumpster.
WHERE WILL TRASH AND RECYCLING BE COLLECTED DURING CONSTRUCTION?
During construction, collection services will be moved to another area of the Jordan Street
Parking Lot shown in blue in the map below. All current waste containers including the
commercial dumpster and grease trap will be moved to this location for the duration of
construction. Please see the attached map.
Once the new dumpsters and leased grease trap are installed, all other waste containers will be
removed from the site.
HOW OFTEN WILL TRASH BE COLLECTED?
When the new dumpsters are operational, the City has contracted with Waste Management to
collect on the following schedule:
● Trash Collected 2x per week
● Recycling Collected 2x per week
● Cardboard Collected 1x per week
At this time, we do not have specific days of the week, and this schedule may change over the
course of the year as the collection needs are evaluated.
