Trash Collection

For our residential customers, garbage is collected twice weekly - with Christmas Day being the only day of the year that garbage and recycling is not collected.

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.
By 7:00 a.m. on your garbage collection day, but not before the evening prior, your blue garbage cart must be placed within five (5) feet of the street. It is important for you always to have the cart facing the street.  After the garbage has been collected, you are required to remove the empty cart, by the end of the same day, to an area that is not visible from the street.  Please call (954) 390-2190 if your trash has not been collected by 5:00 p.m. on your garbage collection day.
Overfilled Garbage Cart
The photo at right shows a garbage cart that was far too overfilled for the City's contractor, Waste Management, to be able to service. In order for their mechanized system to work, the lid of the garbage cart must be closed. In the example shown, the contents of the cart would not make it into the garbage truck, but would end up on the street.

Also, please be aware that blue garbage or green recycling carts that were not provided by the City of Wilton Manors (including those from other cities) will not be serviced by Waste Management and may be confiscated. Any garbage or recycling cart other than the roll-out container provided by the City of Wilton Manors, that is placed at the curb on a regular collection day, may be disposed of along with other trash.

Each residence is supplied with one garbage cart and one recycling cart. Additional carts are available for an additional monthly charge. Please call City Hall at (954) 390-2100 for the current rate and to arrange for delivery of an additional cart. 

Residential customers who are physically disabled or mentally challenged and are unable to place roll-out garbage carts at the curb, may request side-door service. Additionally, residential customers who are 65 years or older may request to use a smaller 35-gallon garbage cart. The City may require sufficient documentation to determine eligibility for side-door service and the use of smaller 35-gallon carts.
