FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
Will I ever need to separate recyclables?
No. All your recyclables go together in your blue recycling cart. Just be sure to empty and lightly rinse all containers, and remove and discard all lids. All aerosol cans must be emptied to hold less than 5 percent content, and all paper should be dry and free of food debris or other contamination.
What's acceptable in the single-stream recycling program?
With Miami-Dade County’s single-stream recycling program, more types of paper will be recycled.
When are the recyclables collected?
Your recyclables are collected every other week on one of your garbage collection days. Each year, you will receive a calendar that shows you the dates of your “every other week” recycling day. Some municipal customers are collected on Wednesdays.
Where do I place the cart for collection?
Just roll your recycling cart out to the curbside by 7 a.m. on your recycling day. Place your recycling cart within 3 feet of the street and at least 5 feet from mailboxes, parked cars or other obstacles.
The wheels must face your home. If you use a Miami-Dade EZGo cart or other automated cart for garbage collection, be sure to leave at least 5 feet between the two carts. After collection, return your recycling cart to its storage place.
Are recycling carts available in sizes other than the 65-gallon cart?
Yes. You can exchange your 65-gallon cart for a smaller 35-gallon or a larger 95-gallon cart. Call 3-1-1 to request a cart exchange.
Can I purchase an additional recycling cart?
Before you purchase an extra cart, you may want to exchange your 65-gallon for a larger 95-gallon recycling cart. However, if the larger cart still doesn’t accommodate all of your recyclables, you can purchase an additional cart for a one-time fee of $50. Call 3-1-1 to place your additional cart order.
May I use another container other than the recycling cart provided by the county?
No. The automated recycling truck can only collect recyclables placed in the County-issued blue recycling cart.
What if my recycling cart is damaged?
If the cart is damaged in the collection process, the County will repair or replace your recycling cart free of charge. If the cart is damaged due to neglect, abuse, or modification, you will be responsible for purchasing a replacement cart.
What if my recycling cart is stolen?
You must report the theft to the police department. The County will replace a stolen cart free of charge if you provide a police case number.
What happens if I move?
The recycling cart is the property of the County. It must remain with the house for use by the next resident.
What if I cannot roll the recycling cart to the curb?
If you are disabled or have difficulty moving your recycling cart to the curb, you may apply for special assistance recycling service by calling 3-1-1.
