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 Utility Billing at (954) 390-2145 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. Never place trash or hazardous waste in your green recycling cart, as unacceptable items mixed with recyclables 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 Drop-off Center


The City also maintains a drop-off center for City residents and businesses to drop off recyclables, and is 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.

Please follow all Recycling Rules and Guidelines when depositing your items into these containers...and also be aware that trash, hazardous waste and bulk items should never be taken to the Recycling Drop-off Center.
