Providing North Miami Beach’s residents and businesses with exceptional waste, recycling, and bulk services that protect, preserve, and improve our environment and the quality of life in our community.
Residential properties will receive garbage collection two days each week. The cost of the service is billed every quarter. To look up your pickup days, see the trash schedule below
What is acceptable household garbage?
Solid household waste consists of many items or products we use each day and throw away, like product packaging, food scraps, bottles, paper, batteries, and more. Liquid household waste includes kitchen cleaners, floor cleaning products, liquid laundry soap and detergent, cooking grease, and personal care products. Garbage must be bagged and consists of all normal household waste. Contents must fall freely from the container when dumped.
What is unacceptable garbage?
Yard clippings, dirt or sod, rocks, concrete, toxic materials, highly flammable materials, construction, and remodeling debris will not be accepted.
Will I have residential/ commercial waste pick-up on a holiday?
There is no collection on Thanksgiving and Christmas. If either holiday falls on your collection day, your waste/recycling will be picked up during your next scheduled collection day.
When do I place my 96-gallon container out for collection?
Be sure to have your cart at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on collection day.
Where do I place my waste container for collection?
The preferred location for your 96-gallon container for collection is to make sure the container handle faces your house and the container is positioned at the edge of the paved traffic lane at least five feet from obstructions such as fences, and lamps posts, mailboxes, or vehicles. Do not block pedestrian access.
What if I have alley waste collection?
Your 96-gallon alley container must be placed behind your property in the alley with the handle facing your house. The container must be placed in the alley on your pick-up day by 7:00 a.m.
If my 96-gallon waste container is missing, can I get another one?
Yes. First, report it missing to the North Miami Beach Police Department by calling 305-949-5500 and obtain a case number. Then, contact Coastal Waste & Recycling at (305) 384-7649, provide your police case number, and request a new waste container. A replacement will be provided at no additional fee.
Who can I call if I have questions about the service?
