Before the Storm

Before the Storm

Properly pruning trees and shrubs before a hurricane approaches can reduce the debris generated during a storm. Proper tree pruning also increases the likelihood that a tree can weather a storm. Make sure to consult or hire a certified and licensed arborist prior to pruning trees.

For more information on proper tree pruning for hurricane season, visit Hurricane Preparation webpage or call 3-1-1.

Miami-Dade Solid Waste customers can dispose of small trash items with twice-weekly garbage collection service. If you receive automated service, all waste must fit in the waste cart and the lid must close.

If you receive manual collection service, small trash items may be set out in bags, cans or bundles with your household garbage. Items should be no more than 50 pounds each and bundles should measure no more than 4 feet in length.

If you do not receive waste collection services from Miami-Dade County, please contact your city for more information about waste removal services.

Do not begin any pruning or cleanup activities or place trash on the curb during a Hurricane Watch or Warning.
