The City of Lauderhill’s New Recycling Service Begins August 4, 2014
The City of Lauderhill is proud to announce that Waste Pro is now the exclusive recycling service provider. Waste Pro will be implementing a new automated recycling collection program with new carts and bins for all Lauderhill residents. Beginning August 4, 2014, you will be able to use your new 65-gallon cart or 18-gallon bin for your recyclables.
Here are Some Frequently Asked Questions...
What is my collection day?
Your collection day will remain the same, however, please refer to the recycle schedule map on our website to determine your scheduled day for service: Click here for Lauderhill Recycle Map
The blue cart or bin is for recyclables only, and they will be serviced once per week. Carts and bins may be placed curbside even if they are half full. If you elected to retain your old container, you may continue to place your 18-gallon bin on the curb on your normal recycling collection day.
Will my rate change in August?
Yes, the new single-family rate for recycling will be $3.10/month and the new multi-family rate will be $1.61/month. There is no charge for the carts or bins, but there is a limit of one (1) cart or one (1) bin per household. If your cart or bin gets lost or stolen, there is an additional fee to order a replacement. If you would like to change the size, an additional fee will be charged to your bill.
What should I do with my current recycle bin?
You may keep your current bin for your own personal use or you may place it curbside to be recycled. If you receive a new 65-gallon cart and you would like to dispose of your 18-gallon container, you may place the 18-gallon bin inside the 65-gallon cart and place curbside on your regular recycling collection day. If there’s not enough room, place the old 18-gallon bin curbside next to the new 65-gallon cart with a note advising that you would like to recycle the old container.
What materials can I recycle?
Acceptable Items: The label on the lid of each cart provides a description of the recycle materials that can be placed in the cart. These items include newspapers and inserts, corrugated cardboard, brown bags, magazines, junk mail, shredded paper, aluminum cans, juice boxes, plastic jugs/dairy tubs, all colors of glass bottles and jars, tin cans and poly coated cans.
Items Not Accepted: Pizza boxes, aerosol cans, hoses, plants, toys, dishes/paper plates, juice pouches (i.e. Capri Sun), tires, styrofoam, clothes/textiles/carpet, batteries, plastic bags, grocery bags, paint, and electronics.
Do I have to separate my recyclable materials?
No, under this program all acceptable materials can be comingled together known as “single-stream recycling”. Single Stream Recycling means that residents do not need to separate their recyclables– it all goes into the blue cart or bin.
How should I place my cart on the street?
Place your blue 65-gallon recycling cart for collection within five (5) feet of the street by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled pick up day. It is important to always have the cart facing the street. Do not place carts or bins next to mail boxes, cars, or on the sidewalk.
Waste Pro provides residential recycling collection service on every holiday except Christmas day.
