Blue Cart with Recyclables GraphicIf you live in a single-family home, or a duplex or triplex, the City of Fort Lauderdale offers Mix it. Curb it., a single-stream curbside program that makes recycling easy for you.

When you sign up for sanitation services, in addition to your black garbage cart and green yard waste cart, you will receive a blue, 65-gallon cart to hold all clean recyclables. Just toss in your paper, as well as your plastic, glass, aluminum and steel and cardboard containers.  Mix it all together and roll it to the curb once per week.

You can look up your recycling day with the City's GIS Property Information Reporter. A contracted hauler in marked collection trucks will pick up your recycling anytime between 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday on your collection day. Recycling carts need to be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on collection days, but no more than 24 hours in advance.

For more information on how to order or care for your cart, how to recycle, or to report collections issues, please click on the buttons at right or call our 24-Hour Customer Service at (954) 828-8000. The "Ordering a Cart" button will take you to our customer service website where you can make your order online.
