Solid Waste & Recycling
The Waste Wizard search tool allows residents to type in any keyword and get disposal tips. Not sure what items go into the recycling cart or the garbage cart? Waste Wizard will allow residents to easily search for how to properly dispose of hundreds of different materials including hazardous waste, bulk and yard waste.
The City of Margate has awarded an exclusive franchise to Waste Management for the collection of residential curbside garbage and recycling, commercial garbage, and multi-family recycling.
Waste Management provides online support through their new TracEZ system:
Residential customers consist of households that receive curbside collection of garbage.
Multi-Family Residential Customers
Rental apartment communities and owner-occupied multi-family communities that have opted to join the City’s exclusive franchise are provided garbage, recycling, and weekly bulk collection services through the City’s exclusive franchise. To establish, change, or discontinue collection services, multi-family residential customers should contact Waste Management directly at 954-974-7500.
Multi-family residential customers are to provide their residents with access to recycling. A minimum capacity of one 95-gallon recycling cart collected weekly shall be provided for every eight (8) units in the community. Equivalent dumpster capacity and/or more frequent collections may be used to provide the minimum capacity.
Condos that have not opted into the City's exclusive franchise, please follow the link for Owner Occupied Multi-Family Communities for more information on services for your community.
