Recycling Route Changes
Waste Management is changing the Recycling Collection days for some of our residents to better balance the Recycling Collection routes and improve service. Waste Management has placed informational door hangers to advise those residents affected. The next two weeks will mark a transition period with some collection of the old route as needed. Residents are urged to observe the new route schedule. Beginning the week of May 15, 2017 only the new route schedule will be services.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to improved servicing for Recycling Collection in the near future. If you have any questions please call the Public Works Department at 954-946-7386.
Broward County Ongoing Sewer System Rehabilitation
As part of Broward County’s ongoing sewer system rehabilitation project in our City, their subcontractor will be installing cleanouts for all residents within their service area. The project is being executed in phases with the next phase planned between US1 and NE 21st Avenue south of Sample Road. The paint marks presently placed on the ground serve to guide the contractor and the Sunshine One Call responders to locate the cleanouts and mark the other underground utilities accordingly.
The cleanouts will be placed at or near the city right-of-way line or easement on top of the sewer lateral pipe enabling internal pipe lining and improved diagnosis and repair of sewer problems. Once the cleanout is installed, a black cover with the word “Sewer” on it will be placed over the pipe and cemented in place.
If you have any questions please contact the Public Works Department at 954-946-7386.
