Trash Collection

Proper Garbage Cart Placement at CurbFor our residential customers, trash is collected twice weekly - with Christmas Day being the only day of the year that trash is not collected. Please consult the attached map or call (954) 390-2100 to find out your trash pickup days.

By 7:00 a.m. on your garbage collection day, but not before the evening prior, your 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. Residents are allowed to put out their cart and either one additional bag of trash not to exceed forty (40) pounds in weight or one bundle of branches not to exceed four (4) feet in length or forty (40) pounds in weight. The additional bag of trash should be placed on top of the cart (see photo at right). After the trash 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.
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 garbage cans 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 can other than the rollout container provided by the City of Wilton Manors, that is placed at the curb on a regular trash day or on a bulk pick-up day, may be disposed of along with other trash.

Each residence is supplied with one garbage 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 garbage cart.
Residential customers who are physically disabled or mentally challenged and are unable to place rollout 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.
