WHAT DO I PUT IN MY GARBAGE CART AND HOW OFTEN IS IT COLLECTED?
Household garbage should be bagged before placing in the cart.
Bags will keep your cart clean and minimize odors. Do not put
hot ashes or coals, recyclable items, household hazardous waste
and medical waste in the garbage cart. Do not overfill the
carts. The lids must remain closed to prevent littering, allow
for automated collection and help to control odor and varmints.
Residents are not allowed to reload the cart for additional
service on their collection day. You should occasionally hose
out your cart.

Please call the City of Pembroke Pines Public Services
Department to request special service if you are disabled- 954-450-6900.

WHAT ABOUT PARKING ON COLLECTION DAYS?

the driver will not pick up at that time. You will not receive
collection service. In order to be serviced, all carts should be
placed at least three feet from vehicles, trees, etc., as
discussed previously. In those few locations where parking is an
extreme problem, or where sidewalks are narrow, place carts on
the driveway or next to the curb with the wheels against the
curb, and park autos so as to accommodate the new system. When
delivered, your wheeled cart will be placed in the correct
position for collection.
WHAT IF MY CART IS STOLEN, DAMAGED OR DESTROYED?
wheeled cart is the property of the City of Pembroke Pines and
must not be painted, abused, mutilated, altered or modified in
any way. If the cart is damaged or stolen, the following policy
applies: If the damage is your fault, you will be required to
pay for a replacement. For example, any cart that is destroyed
by hot ashes or coals shall be the responsibility of the
customer, and it shall be replaced at the customer’s expense. If
the collection contractor damages your cart it will be replaced
at no charge.
WHAT IS THE SERIAL NUMBER STAMPED ON MY CART?

number stamped on your cart. This helps residents keep up with
their cart, and helps the City of Pembroke Pines locate lost
carts and return them to their proper home.
HOW DO I DISPOSE OF HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE (HHW) SUCH AS
PAINT AND MOTOR OIL?
not place HHW (flammables, paint, poisons, motor oil, etc.)
