Waste Collection

Most residential properties receive automated pickup of the green waste carts two days each week. The cost of the service is billed on your annual tax bill. To look up your pickup days, input your address into the Geographic Information System (GIS) tool.

Waste collection service is provided, rain or shine, except on these holidays: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Independence Day and Christmas Day, as observed by Miami-Dade County. Service will resume on your following scheduled pickup day.

Manual waste collection, where garbage is not collected using automated trucks, is provided to a limited number of households in Miami-Dade's waste collection service areas.

A limited number of customers receive twice weekly community container garbage collection (dumpster) service. Oversized trash such as furniture and household appliances should not be placed in the dumpsters or left next to them. Instead, you should take them to one of the 13 Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers.
