The Miami-Dade County Public Works and Waste Management Department (PWWM) urges residents to get rid of unwanted trash before a storm threatens. PWWM service area residents can dispose of household trash, bulky items and tree cuttings at one of 13 Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers located throughout Miami-Dade County. These sites are open daily from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Following is a list of Trash and Recycling Center addresses:
- North Dade, 21500 NW 47 Avenue
- Norwood, 19901 NW 7 Avenue

Residents can also utilize their twice-yearly bulky waste pickup service. The Department will collect up to 25 cubic yards of household trash, yard waste and other bulky items twice per fiscal year (October 1 through September 30). Before placing items at the curbside for collection, residents must schedule a pickup by calling 3-1-1, the County's Answer Center, or by requesting a pickup online at www.miamidade.gov/publicworks.
"We encourage residents to complete tree pruning and other cleanup activities before a weather event is a threat," said PWWM Director Kathleen Woods-Richardson. "Residents that schedule a bulky waste pickup when a tropical storm or hurricane threat is imminent may not receive this service prior to the storm," added Woods-Richardson.
