Bulk yard waste information

Name: Jer­ry Jasper

Here is my post for the Wall of Something:

Each res­i­den­tial unit in the City of Venice is allowed two, 20-yard col­lec­tions of bulk yard waste per fis­cal year. Yard waste should be in one pile, with­in 6 feet of the curb, and not under pow­er lines or tree limbs.

The pile should not be spread out. Taller is bet­ter than wider. Limbs and branch­es in the pile should not exceed 10 feet in length.

Appoint­ments for pick­up should be made before the pile is placed curb­side. Please call the City Pub­lic Works Depart­ment 941–486‑2422 for an appointment.

City of Venice sol­id waste col­lec­tion update 4/6

The City of Venice is work­ing hard to pro­tect our com­mu­ni­ty. Cur­rent­ly, all garbage, recy­cling and yard waste col­lec­tion will con­tin­ue as usu­al; how­ev­er, we want to noti­fy our res­i­dents of sev­er­al impor­tant pre­cau­tions which will begin on Mon­day, April 6:

· All res­i­den­tial garbage and recy­cling must be placed inside the cor­rect auto­mat­ed cart for col­lec­tion. For the safe­ty of our staff, noth­ing placed out­side of the cart will be col­lect­ed at this time.

· If you have addi­tion­al garbage or items that will not fit in the cart, please save it for your next reg­u­lar­ly sched­uled pick­up day, or con­tact Pub­lic Works to sched­ule a bulk col­lec­tion. Bulk garbage and bulk yard waste will con­tin­ue to be col­lect­ed and must be sched­uled by con­tact­ing the Pub­lic Works office at 941–486‑2422.

· City of Venice res­i­dents will con­tin­ue to receive once week­ly col­lec­tion of pre­pared yard waste. You may use garbage cans, or bags (any col­or or type) to pack­age your yard waste. Your yard waste may also be tied up in bun­dles as long as they are not longer than 4 feet and do not weigh more than 40lbs. As long as your yard waste is pre­pared in this way there is no lim­it to how many bags, cans or bun­dles you put out.

· Card­board box­es should be bro­ken down flat and placed into the blue recy­cling cart for col­lec­tion. For card­board that will not fit inside a recy­cling cart, pub­lic dump­sters for card­board will be placed at the fol­low­ing two locations:

1. The Venice Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­ter, 300 S. Nokomis Ave., with­in the south­ern park­ing area.

2. The inter­sec­tion of Pine­brook Rd. and Lucaya Ave., to the east of Pine­brook Rd. near the cro­quet field entrance.

· If your col­lec­tion should get missed for some rea­son, please con­tact the Pub­lic Works office and staff will sched­ule a return trip with­in 24 hours.

Please con­tact Pub­lic Works at 941–486‑2422 for any oth­er sol­id waste or recy­cling ques­tions. We tru­ly appre­ci­ate your coop­er­a­tion and assis­tance dur­ing this chal­leng­ing time.

B&C Pavers. If you need any­thing rel­a­tive to paver or traver­tine repair or even a new project, please don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact Blake at B&C Pavers at 941–914‑7731. I had a very minor re-lev­­el of traver­tine and was hav­ing a hard time get­ting any­one to han­dle and could not get the traver­tine up myself with­out issues. He was very pro­fes­sion­al, kept in touch and com­plet­ed the repair in a time­ly fash­ion. They can han­dle any job small or large.

Amazing garage floor re-do! HIGH recommendation

Name:Pamela Henard

Here is my post for the Wall of Some­thing:
My hus­band and I just had our garage floor redone by Pro Paint­ing and Wade Con­sul. I high­ly rec­om­mend them! What a dif­fer­ence. Wade was the best con­trac­tor to work with. He always kept in touch and showed up when he said he would. He’s very polite, cour­te­ous, pro­fes­sion­al and on-time. The work was com­plet­ed in two days and the fin­ished prod­uct is amaz­ing! I only wish I had done this soon­er. I’m includ­ing before and after pic­tures along with Wade’s busi­ness card. If you’ve been think­ing about doing this, don’t hes­­i­­tate-call now! You def­i­nite­ly won’t regret it. Your only regret will be that you had­n’t done it soon­er. And there are lots of col­ors to choose from!
