Miami-Dade County suspends bulky waste pickup scheduling

MIAMI (September 06, 2017)

In preparation for severe weather conditions that may affect south Florida, Miami-Dade County has suspended scheduling of bulky waste pickups, effective immediately.

Trash collection crews will continue to service previously scheduled bulky waste piles as weather permits. However, residents are urged to refrain from placing any new material on the right-of-way for collection. Trash needing immediate disposal should be taken to the nearest Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Center (TRC).

The TRCs will have extended hours of operation until 7 p.m. beginning tonight, to accept trash during this period of emergency preparation. For the address of the closest TRC, DSWM waste collection customers should call 311 or visit the Department's website at As a reminder, the TRCs are open only to DSWM waste collection customers.

Curbside garbage and recycling services will continue to be provided as long as weather permits.

For up-to-date information on waste collection, recycling services and other Hurricane Irma updates, residents are advised to visit the Emergency website or call 311.

Municipal residents not served by Miami-Dade County should contact their respective waste service providers for updates and information related to the storm.
