Our bulky waste crews are currently addressing curbside hurricane debris piles and will continue to do so throughout this recovery period. We’ve hired contracted hurricane debris collection crews to assist in this effort so you’ll see their trucks in your neighborhood.
Rest assured, we won’t stop until every last bit of debris has been picked up.
The County is using the most effective methods, techniques, equipment and products to control the mosquito population. We want to enhance your quality of life and reduce the possibility of mosquito-transmitted disease.
Miami-Dade County residents that experience a mosquito biting nuisance can request a residential inspection online by visiting the 311 Direct Website.

New web application helps haulers with Disposal Facility Fee reporting requirements
Solid Waste Management is launching a new web application to help permitted private haulers accurately determine the Disposal Facility Fee (DFF) Area as defined in Section 15-1(r) of the Miami-Dade County Code. The interactive web application allows haulers to enter a service address to determine DFF applicability and displays the physical location of the property. Additional features of the new app include the ability to print a search record and access to an online map that displays the location of all Solid Waste Management facilities.
While the Department of Solid Waste Management has done its best to ensure the accuracy of the information contained on the DFFA map and the web application, each private hauler remains responsible for ensuring that DFF eligible service accounts are included in monthly DFF reports and payments.
