HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE

Household Garbage is collected twice a week, including every holiday except Christmas Day. Regular collection may be interrupted during hurricane warnings. Be sure to check the City website for special instructions.

Residents provide their own household garbage containers which cannot exceed 50 pounds when filled. Place your containers at the curb on collection day by 7:00 a.m. Please wrap any sharp objects and place them in a bag before inserting into the garbage container or bag.

Do NOT include Household Hazardous Waste in household garbage containers, See Household Hazardous Waste section below for details on disposal.

If you are disabled or elderly and cannot bring your household garbage to the curb, please call the Public Works Department at 954-946-7386 to request side-yard pickup.

For missed household garbage pickup or bulk trash/yard waste pickup, please contact Waste Management at 954-974-7500, and select Option #3.   Garbage Collection Map

BULK TRASH/YARD WASTE

Bulk Trash and Yard Waste are also collected twice a week, on the same days as your regularly scheduled household garbage collection days. Please place bulk trash and yard waste separately from your household garbage and recycling. Be sure to keep piles away from trees, tree limbs, overhead utility wires, fire hydrants, mailboxes and any other objects in the area.

Acceptable Bulk items include: furniture, appliances (be sure to remove refrigerator/freezer doors and freon), fencing, mattresses.

Note: Construction Contractors and Landscape maintenance providers must dispose of all debris generated by their work. Residents risk being charged a disposal fee for the removal of any construction debris and landscape debris left by a contractor or landscaper. Garbage Collection Map

RECYCLING

It’s easy to recycle with the new no-sort system called “single-stream recycling.” ALL recycling items can be placed in the same container.

Recycling service is provided once a week. Recycling items will be collected on the first day of your regularly scheduled household garbage collection. So, if you have Monday/Friday garbage days, your recycling day is Monday. If you have Tuesday/Friday garbage days, your recycling day is Tuesday.

 To prepare your items for recycling, please empty, rinse and remove lids from all containers.
