house 2 (Small)

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.

In partnership with Waste Pro USA, the City of Hollywood collects garbage twice per week, recycling once a week, and commingled waste (yard waste and bulk waste) once a week. All collections begins at 7:00 a.m. except in the Beach District which begins at 8 a.m. Garbage containers can be placed out the night before a collection or earlier than 6:30 a.m. on the collection day.

Sanitation Rate Schedule

A new monthly sanitation fee for the collection, processing and disposal of solid waste, garbage, commingled waste and recyclable materials went into effect October 1, 2019 for single family and duplex 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.

  • The arrow located on the lid and metal bar on front of container should be facing out into the street or alley
  • The lid must be closed so the garbage will not spill on the ground when emptied.

  • All garbage to be collected MUST be placed inside the container.
  • Do not place anything on top of the closed lid or on the ground around the cart, as this will stop the driver from emptying the container.
