Residential Recycling Collection Service is provided by Southern Waste Systems (SWS) on the first of your two (2) solid waste days i.e. Monday (Area 1), Tuesday (Area 2), and Wednesday (Area 3). Recycling items should be placed curbside no later than 7:00AM on your designated collection day in appropriate recycling bins separated by paper in one bin and plastic/cans/bottles in the other. Click here for a list of recyclable items. If you have extra recyclables or wish to drop them off yourself, click here for information regarding Broward County's FREE Recycling Drop-Off Program.
Residents are strongly encouraged to recycle as much as possible. The State of Florida mandates a recycling rate of 30%, however Broward County is currently at a 24% recycling rate, with a programs objective from the Resource Recovery Board to be at the 30% as soon as possible, so every bit helps and we must work together. Look at materials and areas in your household where you can recycle. For example, cardboard boxes should be broken down and placed curbside on your recycling day for the recycling truck to pick-up not the solid waste truck. For those materials not accepted in the County’s recycling stream, for example, wire hangers or styrofoam, check your local shipping store, they may accept the peanut styrofoam or donate to local non-profit organizations or creative re-use education centers in Broward County.
