TOWN OF DAVIE TRANSITIONS RECYCLING TO RENEWABLE ENERGY
DAVIE, Fla. – The Town of Davie is altering its processing of recycling materials as part of the recent solid waste transition. Going forward, all residential trash and recycling materials collected from single-family residences, both garbage and recycling will be sent to the Wheelabrator South Broward Waste-to-Energy plant located on SR7/441.
At the Waste-to-Energy plant, ferrous and non-ferrous metals are separated from the materials we deliver and are recycled back into the marketplace to create new products. The remainder is incinerated into fuel that can produce as much as 66 megawatts of electricity used to power over 38,000 homes in Broward County.
This transition occurred because of two reasons: the global recycling market changed and contamination issues. Low, and in some cases, no demand in the global marketplace for materials such as glass and plastics #3 through #7, combined with the low value of mixed paper and high rates of contamination, have tripled the cost of processing recyclable materials over the past few years. In addition, if the recycling is contaminated with waste, the contaminated recyclables end up in the landfill. As a result of this transition, the recyclables will be converted into energy instead of being landfilled.
While this approach is not ideal, the Town is still asking residents to source separate their materials between green (garbage) and beige (recycling) carts. We are making this request because we are collaborating with Broward County and other municipalities to determine the feasibility of opening a government-run recycling facility in Broward County. Once the Town resumes recycling processing in the future, we will be in a state of readiness to participate as we will still be separating our recyclables.
LA CIUDAD DE DAVIE HACE LA TRANSICIÓN DE RECICLAJE A ENERGÍA RENOVABLE
DAVIE, Fla. – La ciudad de Davie está alterando su procesamiento de reciclaje. En el futuro, toda la basura y los materiales de reciclaje recogidos de las residencias unifamiliares se enviarán a la planta de residuos para energía Wheelabrator South Broward ubicada en SR7/441.
En la planta de residuos para energía, los metales ferrosos y no ferrosos se separarán de los materiales recolectados y se reciclan para crear nuevos productos. El resto se incinera creando combustible que podrá producir hasta 66 megavatios de electricidad utilizados para alimentar a más de 38,000 hogares en el condado de Broward.
Esta transición se ha producido por dos razones: la demanda global de reciclaje ha cambiado y los problemas de contaminación han aumentado. La falta de demanda en el mercado global de materiales como vidrio y plásticos, en combinación con el bajo valor del papel mezclado y las altas tasas de contaminación, han triplicado el costo del procesamiento de materiales reciclables en los últimos años. Además, si el reciclaje está contaminado con residuos, los materiales reciclables contaminados terminan en el vertedero (landfill). Como resultado de la transición mencionada, los materiales reciclables se convertirán en energía.
Si bien este enfoque no es ideal, la ciudad continúa pidiendo a los residentes que separen sus materiales entre carros verdes (basura) y beige (reciclaje). Estamos haciendo esta solicitud en colaboración con el Condado de Broward y otros municipios para determinar la viabilidad de abrir una instalación de reciclaje administrada por el gobierno en el Condado de Broward. Una vez que la ciudad reanude el procesamiento de reciclaje en el futuro, estaremos preparados para continuar la recolección, ya que mantendremos separando nuestros materiales reciclables.
Bulk Trash Services – Monthly
Residential customers who receive curbside services will have a once per month bulk pickup. Refer to the bulk maps below for your scheduled date from June through December 2021. Your service date may have changed due to the new maps.

An additional charge of $18.15 per cubic yard for the excess amount over 15 cubic yards will be charged when the pickup is rescheduled.
