Residential Single Stream Recycling

The City of Coconut Creek uses single stream recycling, which means that all recyclable materials can be placed in the same cart.

These carts can be filled with accepted recyclable materials only and not used for trash.  When putting the cart out for collection, the lid should always be in the closed position to protect from rain or other contamination.

Proper Cart Placement

The cart should be placed within two feet (2’) of the edge of road. The front of the cart (side with bar) must be facing the road so that the mechanical arm of the truck can attach to the bar. 

 

Improper Cart Placement

It is important that the carts be placed curbside properly. The driver will not exit the collection truck to make carts accessible for collection. To that end, if they are not placed correctly, they will not be collected.
