Coral Springs, FL – The city is excited to announce the expansion of our drop off  recycling program for residents who would like to ensure non-contaminated recycling. A recycling container is now located at Mullins Park (2501 Coral Springs Drive) next to the Coral Springs Gymnasium and is open for drop off 24/7. This new collection point is in addition to the recycling option at the Waste Transfer Station, which is open Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 to 5 p.m. (12600 Wiles Road). 

Regarding the expansion of recycling drop-off, Public Works Director John Norris, says, “When recycling collection in our city became so contaminated, we had to shift to the Waste to Energy option. We recognize the importance of recycling and the need for clean recycling options for our environmentally conscious residents, to meet that need we created and expanded this drop off solution.”

The recycling container can only be used for the following items (in individual collection areas of the container):

1. Plastic material with the number 1 or 2 on the containers (rinsed and dry)
2. Metal and aluminum cans (rinsed and dry)
3. Newspaper and mixed paper (dry only)
4. Cardboard (broken down)

We ask residents who utilize this option to please refrain from contaminating the recycling with non-recyclable materials.
