While recycling in the City of Plantation is not mandatory, the City strongly encourages residents to recycle any and all recyclable materials. Recycling reduces the amount of solid waste placed in the regular blue trash bags, and thus lowers the overall cost of residential solid waste services. In order to recycle, the City of Plantation requires all non-multifamily residents, single-family homes, townhouses, duplexes and triplexes (other than those located in Plantation Acres or Melaleuca Isles) to use Plantation's clear recycling bags for their solid waste recycling.
The Public Works Department will have a phone book recycling container in place at the Horticultural Station from March 1 – May 31, 2010. Residents can also place phone books in their recycling bag should they not want to drive over to the Public Works complex.
Effective October 1, 2009, the City of Plantation, along with most of Broward County, has adopted the “single stream” system for recycling. This means that ALL recyclable items may be commingled into one clear recycle bag (as opposed to the previous “dual stream system,” whereby residents had to separate recyclable paper from other recyclable material).
The following items may all be mixed, into one recycle bag. Please remove all caps and rinse containers before placing into the clear recycling bag or multifamily container. If caps are not removed, waste is considered contaminated and cannot be recycled.
For more information, please call Waste Management at 954-974-7500.
