The City of Miramar has entered into a new agreement with Waste Pro of Florida for collection of garbage, recyclables, and bulk pickup. The city’s new 7-year contract with Waste Pro went into effect May 1, 2022. Rates increased from $18.75 to $30.46 per month. There will be no change in the service levels offered to its residents. With two days per week garbage pickup, one day per week for recycling. One day per month for unlimited bulk pickup (Contractor Generated Waste is not acceptable). For the Riviera Isles Community, recycle pickup will change from Saturdays to Wednesdays effective July 6, 2022.
Interim City Manager Dr. Roy Virgin stated, “I am pleased that we were able to enter successful negotiations with Waste Pro of Florida. The monthly sanitation collection rate has not changed for our residents in over 11 years. The rising cost of products, labor, and services however, made the price adjustment necessary to offset these increased costs. The new rate is in line with what neighboring cities pay for waste collections. With the added bonus that Miramar residents will continue to receive recycling collection, and there will be no limits placed on bulk pick-up.”
