For 12 years, North Miami Beach’s monthly fees for garbage and recycling services remained unchanged for residents and businesses. However, labor costs, fuel, and other expenses for solid waste services have risen dramatically in that time. For the past several months, the City temporarily offset the increase with funds from its reserve budget, but it now must move forward with a rate increase beginning May 1, 2021.
Contact NMB Customer Service at 305-948-2960 (24 hours, 7 days) or in-person in the City Hall lobby, Monday through Friday 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.: 17011 NE 19th Avenue, North Miami Beach, FL 33162.
The City is exploring all options for solid waste service, including contracting with a different company and bringing trash and recycling service in-house. The final decision will determine the need for additional rate adjustments going forward.
In addition to trash and recycling collection, solid waste fees pay for repairs, replacements, and beautification projects along the City’s medians, swales, easements, and roadways.
Under the current service extension with Waste Management, trash, recycling, and bulk collection days will remain the same.
