By 7 a.m. on your garbage collection day, but not before the evening prior, your blue garbage cart must be placed within five (5) feet of the street. It is important for you always to have the cart facing the street. After the garbage has been collected, you are required to remove the empty cart, by the end of the same day, to an area that is not visible from the street. Please call (954) 390-2190 if your trash has not been collected by 5 p.m. on your garbage collection day.
Additionally, please refer to the Collection Days & Instructions for more information. The photo at right shows a garbage cart that was far too overfilled for the City's contractor, Waste Management, to be able to service. In order for their mechanized system to work, the lid of the garbage cart must be closed. In the example shown, the contents of the cart would not make it into the garbage truck, but would end up on the street.
