About Us

Solid Waste Management provides waste collection and recycling services to unincorporated Miami-Dade County and the cities of Aventura, Cutler Bay, Doral, Miami Gardens, Miami Lakes, Opa-locka, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and Sunny Isles Beach. Curbside recycling services are also provided to the following cities that have inter-local agreements with Miami-Dade County: El Portal, Florida City, Medley, Miami Beach, Miami Springs, North Bay Village, South Miami, Virginia Gardens and West Miami.

Waste collection is provided twice each week and recycling every other week. Customers can schedule two bulky waste pickups each calendar year and have access to 13 Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers and two Home Chemical Collection Centers.

We own and operate three landfills and three Regional Transfer Stations for waste disposal. The Department also own the Resources Recovery Facility where waste is converted into energy that is used to power the plant and exported to the power grid.

We issue permits to general haulers, landscapers and tire generators.

Other responsibilities under Chapter 15 of the Miami-Dade County Code include issuing warnings and citations for waste-related code violations.

We also provide countywide mosquito prevention and control services.
