Recycling Schedule Changes Coming June 14th

The City of Coral Gables has always prided itself in providing first class garbage, trash and recycling services to residents.

The services come at a cost of over $860 a year per household.

Residents have been hit with numerous delays in pickups over the last two years. The City has attributed these to staffing, maintenance issues of the aging fleet and COVID.

On June 14th, the City will be going from a 5-day pickup schedule to a 4-day pickup schedule for recycling service.

Not all households will be affected by the change, but some will be adjusted. The adjustment is intended to switch to “more efficient pickup routes,” minimizing “time spent driving between pickups and will conveniently allow a resident’s recycling pickup day to fall on one of their household garbage pickup days. Also, not only will moving to a four-day operation create an ‘off-day’ that will allow for vehicle maintenance without delaying service, but it will also provide time to recover due to unforeseen disruptions such as storms and vehicle breakdowns.”

“We are striving to improve our service delivery and efficiencies and look forward to the positive effects these changes will have on our recycling services,” said Al Zamora, Assistant Director of Public Works – Solid Waste.

Residents can look up their address and learn their new pickup day on the City’s website www.CoralGables.com/Recyclinghttp://www.CoralGables.com/Recycling.

  1. The link did work, my days are not changing. But I surely agree with everything else stated. We pay a lot of money for lousy service. The cardboard box change is a pain in the butt and frequently left behind, except for the people that continue to put boxes on their swale spot week after week and never seem to be cited regarding the violation. I know sure as heck the time I did it, they’d get me. I have/had (they may have moved, still trying to figure that out) a next door neighbor that flagrantly ignores the rules but never seems to have a problem with it.

  2. So many missed pickups I deserve a refund!

    The City Beautiful with dumpsters in front of every home full of pizza boxes and old toilets is laughable. Politicians dont want to work on the **ISSSUES****.

  3. The comment about CG priding itself in providing “first class garbage, trash, and recycling services” is RUBBISH. Without a doubt, it is the worst service of its kind that we have ever experienced. Your drivers are reckless, disregarding safety on the roads, more times than not our trash is NOT picked up, and the trash/litter left behind by the crews is abominable. It’s time you stop your delusional rhetoric and diligently tackle improving service.

  5. The problem begins with Al Zamora, he is an utter disaster , he encourages selective enforcement of fees and does not look to benefit home owners, he needs to go back to the private sector where he received his ruthless training profiteering from tax payers.

  6. Households pay adicional taxes properties recolecten by Miami-Dade $860 years to be an sanctuary of slavery people recollected manually garbage & recycle unaccountable. It’s time to end.
