While employees at both departments are happy to answer that question, some Miami-Dade residents may be interested in a convenient alternative to making a phone call.
“Many of our residents have discovered the convenience of receiving a recycling alert by email,” said Solid Waste director Kathleen Woods-Richardson. “It’s quick, easy and once you do it you will always receive an email the day before your recy-cling pick-up day.”
The helpful service — provided free of charge — takes only a few minutes to set up. Residents can go to the DSWM home page (www.miamidade.gov/dswm) and click on the link “Sign up for recycling alerts,” then follow the instructions.
Once registered, residents receive an email notification the evening before their scheduled recycling pickup day.
“Once you sign up for a recycling alert, you never have to think about it again, or worry about when your recycling day is,” Woods-Richardson said.
The DSWM provides curbside recycling service to 348,000 single family households in the unincorporated areas of Miami-Dade County as well as all residences in 21 participating municipalities including locally Cutler Bay, Florida City, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and South Miami.
