Recyclable Items

The City of Wilton Manors has a single-stream recycling system, which means you can place all of your recyclables together in the same green roll-out cart, without sorting. The following video explains How Single-Stream Recycling Works. Each resident is provided with one green recycling cart.  Additional carts are available for a small monthly fee, and may be obtained by contacting City Hall (954-390-2100) to schedule a delivery and have this added to your utility bill.
These Recycling Rules and Guidelines describe DO's and DON'Ts for acceptable items as well as the best practices for responsible recycling. Please keep in mind that unacceptable items included in your recycles contaminate the collection and recycling process, which is counter-productive to your recycling efforts.  "When In Doubt, Throw It Out!" Also, check out a really helpful YouTube animated video called "How does a Material Recovery Facility (MRF, sounds like MURF) work?" for an easy-to-understand explanation of how our recyclables are sorted.

For our residential customers, recyclables are collected once a week - with Christmas Day being the only day of the year that recyclables are not collected.

Recycling Collection Schedule

The City is divided into three zones for collection of garbage, recycling and bulk items as shown on the Collection Schedule.

West Zone:  Your garbage collection is on Monday and Thursday, and your recycling will be collected on Thursday.
Central Zone:  Your garbage collection is on Tuesday and Friday, and your recycling will be collected on Friday
East Zone:  Your garbage collection is on Wednesday and Saturday, and your recycling will be collected on Wednesday.

Please call (954) 390-2190 if your recyclables have not been collected by 5:00 p.m. on your recycling collection day.

Recycling Drop-off Center

The City also maintains a drop-off center for City residents and businesses to drop off recyclables, located at the corner of NE 12th Avenue and NE 24th Street in Wilton Manors. The drop-off center consists of several marked containers in a well-lit parking lot with 24 hour access. Follow all recycling guidelines when depositing your items into these containers!

Electronics Recycling

If you have some electronics items you would like to recycle, such as computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, televisions, fax machines, cell phones and rechargeable batteries, as well as chemicals, solvents and cleaners, the City has contracted with Waste Management for a convenient once a month At-Your-Door service for collection of household hazardous waste (HHW). Please see the  HHW Collection Flyer for collection details, or call 1-800-449-7587 to schedule a pickup.  Your pickup must be scheduled through Waste Management at least 10 days prior to the collection date. Please note that City residents can no longer drop off their electronics for recycling at Broward County drop-off locations.
