Hurricane Irma

As we continue our recovery and cleanup efforts, please visit the Emergency website for the latest information on openings and closings in Miami-Dade County.


Recycling is a process that depends on three important steps: collecting, re-manufacturing and purchasing products made with recycled content. Each step is essential for the recycling industry to succeed. Miami-Dade County facilitates the collection process through the following programs.

Damaged or stolen waste and recycling carts
If your waste or recycling cart is damaged in the collection process, call 3-1-1 and Miami-Dade County will repair or replace your cart free of charge.

If either cart is stolen, call the police department (non-emergency number) and obtain a case number. Contact 3-1-1 with the police case number, and a replacement cart will be delivered to you at no charge.

Grasscycling is a simple and natural approach to lawn care. Clippings are left on the lawn after mowing to decompose, releasing nutrients back into the soil. Learn how to grasscycle effectively.

Home Composting

Home composting of yard waste and select kitchen waste takes materials that could wind up in a landfill and converts it into compost, a useful product for our South Florida gardens. Anything that was a plant can be composted.

Workshops will soon be offered to teach proper techniques and management.
