Do I have to close the lid on my cart when setting it curbside?

Yes, it is important to keep the lid on your cart closed at all times. This keeps recyclables dry and prevents them from blowing out of the cart and littering your neighborhood.

It is past my usual pick-up time. What do I do?

While the truck drivers try to keep a consistent schedule, everything from vehicle maintenance to traffic to weather can affect the time that your recyclables will be collected. Hours of collection are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the scheduled service day. Please be patient. Leave your recycling cart curbside. If you are concerned that it is late or if other carts on your street have already been emptied, call Waste Pro at 954-282-6800. Please note that pick-up can also occur early. If your cart is curbside by 7:00 a.m., your recycling will be collected.

What should I do if my recycling cart is damaged or stolen?

If your recycling cart is damaged or stolen, please contact Waste Pro at 954-282-6800 for assistance with repairing or replacing it.

May I request an additional 64-gallon recycling cart?

Yes. Residents who routinely fill their 64-gallon carts to capacity with clean and proper recycling, may contact Waste Pro at 954-282-6800 to request an additional 64-gallon cart for a one-time $75.00 fee.

Currently, the city does not offer recycling services for multi-family homes. If multi-family homes desire to provide these services, they must coordinate with a provider of their choice and will be responsible for payment.

The City of Coral Springs offers household hazardous waste collection services free of charge for residents. Collection takes place at the Waste Transfer Station every first full weekend of the month. Special household hazardous waste collection days are available throughout the year for a wider range of materials.

Batteries are not accepted at the Waste Transfer Station
Lithium-ion batteries should not go in household garbage or recycling bins. Not only do they contain critical raw minerals that can be reused if recycled, but they may be a fire hazard if damaged and improperly disposed. See the external resources below for safe battery disposal.

The City of Coral Springs and WastePro utilize the service provider, "Clean Harbors", to dispose of accepted household hazardous waste items, including electronics. The electronics recycling program at Clean Harbors recycles certain items disposed of in household hazardous waste collection by dismantling the equipment into marketable materials.
