garbage illegal dumping
Do Not Allow Your Gardeners to Illegally Dump Outside Yard Waste in Your Trash Pit 

Lawn maintenance, landscaping and tree trimming companies hired by Coral Gables residents are not allowed to dump yard waste from clients outside of Coral Gables for City pick up. This illegal dumping has dramatically increased the City's landscape collections in the past three years. Coral Gables residents are allowed one cubic yard of trash, including landscape waste, on a weekly basis. Collection in excess of one cubic yard will be at an additional charge to the property owner. Code Enforcement Officers will be issuing fines to all residents who violate this ordinance. Please help us ensure Coral Gables lives up to its City Beautiful tradition. Read the rules here...

Beware of Phone Scams

If you get a phone call from the IRS saying that you owe past taxes and if you do not pay you will be arrested, hang up the phone. This is a phone scam, and unfortunately not the only one. Other phone scams ask victims to donate to a charity by wiring money, or say that you've won a prize but you can't get it until you send money, or that your relative is being held captive until you send money. To prevent being a victim of a phone scam, do not send any money to people you don't know personally. And don't give out personal or financial information to unknown callers. Read more....
