By: Sharon Aron Baron

As of 2024, the City of Tamarac continues to contract with Waste Management of Florida for all residential solid waste services, including collection of household garbage, bulky waste, yard waste, and recycling.

Bulk Trash & Yard Waste

Yard waste can be placed in the same carts as your household garbage. Yard waste includes grass trimmings, tree limbs, palm fronds, etc. Please ensure it is bagged and/or cut to size to allow the lid to close completely. Yard waste can also be set out separately for collection on your regularly scheduled bulk trash day. Yard waste set out for collection must be cut and bundled so that it is not longer than four (4) feet in any direction and not heavier than forty (40) pounds.

Bulk Trash (curbside/single-family) is collected weekly and includes household items such as couches, chairs, mattresses, tables, appliances, carpeting, etc.

Curbside Yard waste and Bulk Trash limits. Tree trimmings, branches, lumber, carpeting, and metal poles must be cut into sections not to exceed 4 feet in length and tied in bundles of 40 pounds or less. Residents are limited to no more than three cubic yards of bulk trash and yard waste each week; however, it is collected once every week.

Bulk Trash (condominiums) is collected quarterly (see schedule below) and includes household items such as couches, chairs, mattresses, tables, appliances, carpeting, etc. Residents should contact property management before setting out bulk trash materials to determine when and where to place the materials.

Construction material (roof shingles, tiles, remodeling or construction debris, sheetrock, concrete, brickwork, etc.) will not be collected in bulk, and the resident is responsible for legal disposal.

Also, any “commercially generated” waste will not be collected. Examples include yard waste or debris left by a landscaping service, contractor, electrician, etc. This material should be removed by the contractor and disposed of legally and responsibly.
