City Holds Earth Month Recycling Event

By: Marlin Ebbert, Sustainability Board Chairman

Last Saturday, April 24th, the City of Coral Gables and the City’s Sustainability Board held its bi-annual collection event at the City Hall parking lot and at the First United Methodist Church parking lot. The City’s Crime Watch Program sponsored paper shredding. 

We estimate that approximately 400 cars and 750 residents attended.

A total of 30,763 pounds of waste was collected:

  • Electronic Waste: 8,804 pounds
  • Hazardous Waste – paints, chemicals, oils, batteries: 13,959 pounds
  • Shredded sensitive documents:  8,000 pounds

Since these popular events began in January 2016, we have been responsible for diverting over 289,791 pounds of waste and keeping it out of our landfills.

Our next recycling event will be held on Saturday, November 6, 2021 from 9am – noon.

    – The residents requires to City Coral Gables only authorize the license to new buildings of apartment, and license of operation only for being for sale to natural persons to be the owners of residential apartment property.
