City to Suspend Curbside Recycling Program Starting July 1, 2020

Due to continued excessive contamination rates contributing to the rising costs for recyclable processing and low global demand for materials, the City Commission voted to suspend the City’s curbside recycling collection programs starting July 1, 2020. The suspension will remain in place until at least October 1, 2020.

The City’s Solid Waste Division will continue to collect the materials from the recycling containers until further notice; however, all materials will be collected and disposed of as garbage.

During this period, the blue cart should only be used as a last resort if there is no more room in garbage carts. These materials will be collected and disposed of as garbage. Blue carts should only be placed curbside on your normal recycling collection day. 

Residents who choose to continue recycling can bring all program recyclable materials to the City’s Recycling Drop-Off Center located at 401 SW 4 Street, Deerfield Beach, FL. The City will also be placing two additional community recycling containers at the locations below.

  • Main Beach Parking Lot, 149 SE 21 Ave, Deerfield Beach, FL
  • Fire Station 66, 590 S Powerline Rd, Deerfield Beach, FL

Please visit www.DFB.city/recycling for additional information on the regional drop-off centers as well as a list of program materials that will be accepted at these locations.

Future program adjustments including but not limited to potential extension of program suspension will be announced as necessary.
