HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE COLLECTION INSTRUCTIONS
- Do Not place household garbage out until 6:00 p.m. the night before your collection day;
- Make sure all garbage is secured in plastic bags, preferably in garbage bins;
- Garbage bins/bagged garbage MUST be accessible and visible from the street;
- PER FEMA RULES, HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE MUST BE KEPT SEPARATE FROM TREE DEBRIS AND OTHER VEGETATIVE MATERIAL. Failure to separate materials will result in delayed service or no pickup.
HURRICANE DEBRIS REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
Hurricane debris removal is being coordinated through FEMA and will begin as soon as possible. Residents are encouraged to place out storm-related debris from their properties, using existing hurricane debris piles if possible. Do not include broken furniture, discards or household refuse in vegetation piles, as this will impede the debris removal and processing operation. Failure to follow these FEMA requirements will result in delayed or no-pickup.
Please call 305-460-5346 or 305-460-5000 if questions.
FOR WASTE MANAGEMENT CUSTOMERS
It is essential that storm debris is placed out separately from regular garbage. That gives Waste Management access to collect the regular garbage, and it gives the City's debris removal contractor access to the storm related debris.
