Manatee County yard waste division needs to get their rules revised since they don't follow them: "Bundles, bags, or containers can weigh no more than 50 pounds each."
This is their write-up on yard waste pick-up, including 4-foot bundles. However, if you put your weed/branches in a recycling container, they don't pick it up (they used to but now in secret have changed this policy).
Since when is a blue recycle box not a container!
Also, Waste Pro is a pathetic excuse for garbage pick-up as they drop garbage, plastic bottles and leaves every time they come around. Waste Management was much more professional and clean.
