Trash and Recycling Centers

Trash and Recycling Centers (TRC) provide a do-it-yourself disposal option for residential waste fee customers who reside in unincorporated Miami-Dade County and the cities of Aventura, Cutler Bay, Doral, Miami Gardens, Miami Lakes, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and Sunny Isles Beach.

Centers are open daily from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. year round, except for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Independence Day and Christmas Day, as observed by Miami-Dade County.

What can I drop off at a TRC?

Customers can drop off household trash, tree and yard cuttings and up to one cubic yard of construction and demolition debris.

You can also dispose of up to four standard automobile tires, and white goods (old stoves, refrigerators, water heaters, washers, dryers, freezers, etc.), at most Trash and Recycling Centers. See the List of Collection Centers below for details.

The disposal of garbage (food or kitchen waste) at these centers is prohibited. Some centers accept used motor oil for recycling.

TRC Access Management System

We've implemented the TRC Access Management System to ensure that only waste fee customers deliver materials to the facilities. Residents are required to present a valid State of Florida driver license or Identification Card to the waste attendant on duty.

The license or ID card will be scanned into a handheld device to determine if the addresses on the license or card is a match against an eligible property address in our database.
