Miami-Dade County Department of Solid Waste Management special waste collection service announcement

MIAMI ( December 28, 2021 )

Miami-Dade County Department of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) customers whose waste collection day is Tuesday should note the following.

While DSWM waste collection staff is working hard to collect all waste placed at the curbside Tuesday, December 28, DSWM is experiencing higher than normal employee absences due to the recent rapid spread of COVID. As a result, DSWM may not be able to complete all Tuesday routes today.

As a remedy, DSWM will be collecting any remaining Tuesday routes tomorrow, Wednesday, December 29. If your waste is not collected today, please leave your green waste cart out so we can collect it tomorrow.

We apologize for the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your patience as we continue to work to serve our community despite the disruptions caused by the pandemic.
