The City of Coral Gables has reinstated its regular waste collection schedules and procedures effective Monday, Nov. 20. Failure to comply will result in penalties issued for waste violations.
Regarding garbage: The collection of two 30-gallon containers will continue twice a week. Remember to place your containers to the rear of the front wall of your residence, in an accessible area. All loose household garbage must be contained in plastic bags.
Regarding recycling: Residents can place all recyclable items on the 14-gallon red containers and be accessible for collection prior to 7 a.m. on the scheduled collection day. All items must be placed inside the bins and cardboard boxes must be broken down inside bins to be collected. Do not leave cardboard boxes on trash pits for collection.
Regarding trash (household refuse /clean yard waste): Residents can place up to one cubic yard of combined trash per week. These materials must be placed in piles on the parkway immediately abutting the property where they are generated. Household refuse, which includes materials such as rubber and small furniture items, may only be placed on the parkway in front of a residence after 6 p.m. on the evening before the scheduled pickup day. Any other large trash piles in excess of one cubic yard are subject to an excess waste fee.
Collection of large appliances such as refrigerators or washers will be subject to a special charge and must be scheduled for collection by calling 305-460-5346. Garden waste can be placed on the parkway at any time during the week for collection.
