Solid Waste Management

About Solid Waste Management

According to the City Code Definition, Solid waste means garbage, rubbish, refuse, yard waste, and other discarded solid or non-liquid materials, including materials resulting in industrial, commercial, agriculture, and community activities.  The term "waste" shall be used synonymously with "Solid Waste."

If you see illegal dumping in action, call 9-1-1 to report the activity while it is in progress. It is a felony to dump household appliances, construction materials, boats, trailers, RVs, and vegetative debris on City-owned vacant land and City rights-of-way and streets.

To report illegal dumping that is not actively in progress, call Code Compliance at 305-809-3740.
