Garbage Collection in Sunny Isles Beach

Miami-Dade County provides garbage collection service for single-family homes in Sunny Isles Beach.

Garbage collection occurs twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. Residential trash and garbage receptacles may not be placed for curbside pickup more than 24 hours before pickup and all receptacles must be removed from the curbside within 24 hours after pickup.

Oversized trash such as furniture and household appliances should not be placed in the dumpsters or left next to them. Instead, you should take them to one of the 13 Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers.

Recycling in Sunny Isles Beach

Sunny Isles Beach is ECOMMITTED

As part of our pledge to be “ECOMMITTED,” the City of Sunny Isles Beach is increasing recycling efforts in our parks and on our beach. Recycling bins can be found at Pelican Community Park, Samson Oceanfront Park, Town Center Park and our beach access pathways. Temporary recycling bins are also located at all of our special events.

The recyclables with the greatest impact are bottles, cans and paper. When it comes to plastic bottles, caps are now recyclable, but you must place them back on the empty container before tossing them in the bin. Be mindful that placing non-recyclable garbage into recycling containers increases the cost of the recycling process and increases the cost of garbage and recycling collection service. The best practice is to put all the right recyclables in the recycling container and all non-recyclables in the trash can. In Sunny Isles Beach, we have single stream recycling, which means that all recycling bins collect cans, plastic bottles, paper, cardboard, and magazines. We do not, however, collect glass objects. Please be sure to place any glass in the trash can.
