City of Hollywood sanitation customers receive solid waste and recycling collection services provided by Waste Pro, USA. The Department of Public Works, Environmental Services Division oversees these services for the City’s single family homes and duplexes. A new monthly sanitation fee for the collection, processing and disposal of solid waste, garbage, commingled waste and recyclable materials went into effect October 1st for these properties.
The new monthly rate for single family homes and duplex apartments is $38.00 for twice-weekly garbage collection, weekly recycling and commingled collections, and material processing and disposal. The City’s sanitation collection rate has remained unchanged for more than 8 years, this $7.00 increase reflects new contractual obligations as well as an increase to the overall material processing and disposal fees charged to the City by the vendor.
Annual increases to the rate will be determined based on contractual obligations and program administrative costs. Estimated increases are as follows: October 1, 2020: 6.43%; October 1, 2021: 5.32%; October 1, 2022: 3.56%; and October 1, 2023 - October 1, 2029: 2.50%, annually. Additionally, beginning in October 2020, household bulk collections will transition to a once monthly collection. Yard waste collections will remain on a weekly schedule.
