Recycling in Miramar

Starting on July 1, 2013, the City of Miramar and Toter, Incorporated delivered brand new recycle carts to most homes receiving curbside solid waste and recycling collection service.

Residents began using the 64 gallon wheeled carts on August 1 as an enhancement of the bins that were previously in use. City Commission approved a Blue 64-gallon wheeled cart as the new standard for collecting recyclables.

The method is designed to increase the amount of recyclables collected curbside by making recycling easier and more convenient for our residents. This new program expects no changes in the collection schedule.

Objectives
In addition, the program will:
  • Residents who wish to begin the recycle program can order a recycling bin/cart (some exceptions apply).
  • The City of Miramar provides home delivery service of recycle bins/carts and delivery takes approximately 72 hours. Residents are entitled to one recycle bin/cart, and one replacement bin/cart free of charge.
Rules
To avoid interruption with your curbside recycling collection service, the following rules should apply:
  • Place recyclable bins/carts within 5 feet of the street by 7 a.m. on the scheduled pick up day.
  • All recyclable items should be commingled in the recycle bin/cart. All corrugated cardboard should be broken down or folded to maximize available space.
  • Newspapers should be placed in a paper bag or tied to prevent windblown litter and contamination; and then put in the recycle bin/cart.
  • Do not put any items in the recycle bin/cart that are not specified as part of the recycling program, otherwise the bin/cart will not be collected.
