Special Hurricane Instructions From the Office of Commissioner Joe Martinez- [Please share]

Wearekendall Hurricane Info Kendall, Miami


• Curbside garbage and waste collection services will continue normal operations on Thursday, August 29th and Friday, August 30th. Following service, residents are encouraged to secure their garbage and recycling carts in their garage, storage/utility shed, carport or patio to prevent the carts from being projectiles during strong winds or floating away during heavy rains.

• Bulky waste scheduling via 311 and online has been suspended as of 12:30 today. Residents who scheduled bulky pickups from Tuesday, August 27th and beyond were advised that their pile may not be addressed prior to the suspension of bulky collection services as a result of the arrival of tropical storm force winds. Residents are being encouraged to use their closest Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers for do-it-yourself disposal of household trash and tree cuttings needing immediate disposal. Our bulky waste crews worked on Wednesday, August 28th which is not a scheduled work day for our bulky collection operation. Wednesday’s operation allowed our crews to address previously scheduled bulky waste piles. Crews will continue collecting previously scheduled piles today, Friday and throughout the weekend, weather permitting. 

Effective today, August 29th and until further notice, the Department’s disposal facilities will observe the following extended hours:


Facility Extended Thursday and Saturday and Hours of Operation Friday Sunday
