    The City of Miami Beach is thrilled to be one of the cities to host the FACTS conference (French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS) which will focus on the impact of sea level rise on local communities. The event will take place on September 28 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

    In the lead up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference being hosted by France in December 2015 (COP 21-Paris Climate 2015), FACTS is a public conference series being held in twelve cities in the United States and Canada in 2015 involving renowned scientists, civil society representatives, NGOs, political figures, journalists and entrepreneurs. FACTS aims to mobilize the public opinion on the issues of the conference and reinforce the dialogue between experts from these countries.

    Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients are considered to be "household hazardous waste". These products contain hazardous ingredients that require special care when disposed of in order to protect human health and the quality of environment. 

    In celebration of America Recycles Day, the City has organized a free household hazardous waste collection event for Miami Beach residents. Drop off your household chemicals and hazardous waste, including paints, cleaners, motor oil, propane, pool chemicals, batteries, electronics, and inkjet, toner, and laser printer cartridges for proper disposal. Additionally, a paper shredding company will have locked containers on-site to accept sensitive documents for certified destruction and recycling.
