Recycling & Waste Reduction

Miami Beach understands the importance of reducing waste, properly managing solid waste activities in the city and providing transparent and self-sustaining services that comply with all environmental regulations.

Educating the community and providing a vast array of sustainable solid waste management options is imperative in improving the overall health of our community. Services such as garbage collection, recycling, and bulk trash pickups are managed by the city’s Public Works –  Sanitation Division . The city also offers residents the opportunity to properly dispose of Household Hazardous Waste and other uncommon items that require a special disposal process.
