Waste Management

Lauderhill's City-wide residential trash service has been contracted with Waste Management (WM). These services are billed on the customer's water bill account. Waste Management is responsible for trash collection from all single-family and multi-family units. WM collects garbage twice weekly, Monday through Sunday. To determine your neighborhood's bi-weekly garbage pick-up days, please call Waste Management at 954-974-7500. Calls are taken Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. After hours, residents can leave a message for Waste Management's residential customer service team.

Containers

96-Gallon Garbage Container (Cart)96-Gallon Garbage Container (Cart)

Waste Management provides each curbside collected residential household with a 96-gallon roll out container. The carts should be placed on the swale, not on the street. The swale area is the grassy area of your yard adjacent to the road. The cart lid opening should face the road so that it can be easily dumped in the garbage truck. Additional trash bags that are placed next to the 96-gallon container will NOT be collected by Waste Management.

Garbage Dumpster Container

Waste Management also provides some households or multi-family residential units with a garbage dumpster container to remove your trash.
