Recycling Is The Law
Did you know that the City of Miami Beach requires business, single family, and multifamily properties to have a recycling program in place ?
Recycling for Single-Family Homes & Condos
If you live in a single-family home, you have the option of contacting the City for single-stream recycling service with pick up on Wednesdays, or a private recycling hauler for your single-stream recycling program.
Recycling for Multi-Family Residences With Two or More Units
Multi-family residences are required to have a single-stream recycling plan. Residences with two to eight units have the option to obtain a single-stream recycling service with the City (Wednesday Pick-ups) or to contract a licensed waste hauler. Properties with nine units or more are required to choose to contract with a licensed recycling hauler or utilize one of the franchise waste haulers permitted to operate in the City.

The City of Miami Beach requires that businesses coordinate their own single-stream recycling plans. Arrange your recycling service with a licensed recycling hauler or utilize one of the waste haulers permitted to operate in the City.
