Request Bulky Waste Pickup
Bulky waste collection service is available to residents of unincorporated Miami-Dade County and residents of the municipalities of Aventura, Cutler Bay, Doral, Miami Gardens, Miami Lakes, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and Sunny Isles Beach.
Customers who receive full residential waste collection services from the Department can request bulky waste service for up to 25 cubic yards twice per fiscal year (October 1 - September 30) by calling 3-1-1 or requesting a bulky waste pickup online. The request for scheduled bulky waste pickup must be made before placing trash at the curbside for collection.
Each household receives two bulky waste pickups during the fiscal year (October 1 - September 30) of up to 25 cubic yards each. If the bulky waste pile exceeds 25 cubic yards, single-family residents can choose to combine the two available bulky waste pickups into one pickup of up to 50 cubic yards. Doing so will exhaust the available pickups for the fiscal year.
Duplexes are entitled to four pickups of up to 25 cubic yards each during the fiscal year (October 1 - September 30). Duplex residents have the option to combine up to four bulky waste pickups into one pickup of up to 100 cubic yards. Anything in excess of 25 cubic yards per pickup will exhaust the next available pickup. This means that if you set out 35 cubic yards, the additional 10 yards will exhaust pickups #1 and #2. You will then have two pickups remaining.
Your trash will be collected within one to eight days from the date you indicate you are ready for pickup. Your trash must be placed at the curbside by the day you say it will be ready for pickup, as the collection could occur as early as day 1.
Trash should be placed at the curbside adjacent to your residence within 10 feet of the street and at least five feet from mailboxes, parked cars, trees, utility poles, sprinkler heads and other obstructions that might be damaged by the collection equipment. A 15-foot clearance is required from the ground to the lowest hanging tree branch or power line. Tree limbs should be no more than 5 feet long.
If you have used your available bulky waste pickups for the fiscal year or you have more than 50 cubic yards for collection, you can use one of the following options to manage your bulky trash:
Take your trash to one of the Department's 13 Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers.
Inquire about the Department's for-fee bulky waste service. The cost for this service is $23 per cubic yard, and there is a minimum 5-cubic yard charge of $115. An approval form signed by the property owner is required for removal of excess bulky waste.
