Residential/Garbage Trash Collection
The material in your garbage that results from general housekeeping can be collected from the back or side yard two times per week. Regular residential garbage does not have to be placed on the swale, the area in front of your home adjacent to the street. Waste Connections will collect
residential waste from back or side yards. Cans or bags cannot weigh more than 50 pounds. Please place all garbage in bags inside your garbage can. Only material placed in the garbage will be removed. It is important to remember that you may not place your garbage out for collection more than
24 hours before your scheduled pickup. If a scheduled pickup is missed, please contact the Sanitation Division at 305.673.7616 before 4:30 p.m.

This is material from yard maintenance, including tree and shrub trimmings, grass clippings and palm fronds. All material must be placed in a container or bundled with a combined weight under 50 pounds. Each limb cannot exceed 4 feet in length or 4 inches in diameter. This material must be placed at the curb no earlier than 24 hours prior to your second pickup day. Gardeners must remove and properly dispose of yard waste immediately after performing work.
Let the first full weekend of the month be a wasteful one. Take your bulk trash to one of two dumpster locations from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the first full weekend of every month. Miami Beach residents must present proof of residency (Identification with a Miami Beach address and/or a utility bill along with photo identification) in order to take advantage of the two locations specified below:
140 MacArthur Causeway at Terminal Island
75 Street and Dickens Avenue
Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive ingredients are considered household hazardous waste. These products contain hazardous ingredients that require special care during disposal to protect human health and the quality of our environment. The city organizes household hazardous waste events throughout the year for residents to drop off their hazardous waste and select electronics at no cost. For more information, please visit the events page.
Illegal Disposal 305.604.2489
All residents should be advised that under the City of Miami Beach Code, the illegal disposal of garden trash, tree, and shrubbery trash, as well as special handling trash, is a violation of the city code. Violations may result in the issuance of citations. Anyone caught illegally dumping will be billed for all trash/waste removal charges, including labor, equipment, and dumping fees in addition to an administrative fee. Interest will accrue at 10% per year until paid as provided by the Miami Beach City Code. Unpaid charges may result in a lien placed upon your property.
Phones, computers, and other electronic equipment can be recycled at the city’s Green Waste Facility at 2800 Meridian Ave., Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Green Waste Facility (GWF)
Bring your green vegetative yard waste to 2800 Meridian Avenue from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. There is no charge to residents arriving in a car, pickup truck or SUV. Motorists arriving in vans or trailers will be charged $21.84 per cubic yard. Proof of Miami Beach residency is required.
Bulk Waste 786.515.2726
Each resident is entitled to six free on-call bulk waste collections (pickups) per calendar year. Once a resident has used up all six bulky waste pickups, additional pickups may be scheduled at $20 per cubic yard. Call to schedule an appointment before you set any bulk waste at the curb.
Recycling is the law in Miami Beach and all properties are required to have a single-stream recycling program in place. For single-family residences and multifamily buildings of eight units or less that are on city garbage collection service, recyclables are collected every Wednesday from your curbside. Place all containers and paper fibers mixed in one single container, instead of being sorted into separate commodities (newspaper, cardboard, plastic, glass, etc.)
Clothes, shoes, and other household textiles can be dropped off 24/7 at the locations below. All proceeds go to supporting sustainability programs.
