Manual Garbage and Trash Collection (Twice Weekly)

Some residential waste collection customers receive manual garbage services. These households do not use green waste carts for garbage collection. Manual collection customers can set out cans (up to 30 gallons) and tied plastic bags by no later than 7 a.m. on your twice-weekly collection days.

Trash, including yard clippings, must be canned, bagged or bundled in lengths of up to four feet using twine, rope, or duct tape. Each can, bag or bundle must weigh less than 50 pounds.

Curbside garbage pickup is available on each service day, rain or shine. Waste will not be collected on the following holidays as observed by Miami-Dade County government:  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday, Independence Day and Christmas.
