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. Your recycling is on your second garbage collection day of the week.

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.

Acceptable Items:

  • Plastic bottles and jugs such as milk, soda, water, detergent and shampoo containers labeled 1 or 2.
  • Cardboard boxes such as those used for shipping.   Flatten and place in cart.
  • Empty aluminum and steel cans

Remember, before placing recyclables in your single-stream cart, make sure to:

  • Rinse containers 

  • Remove straws

  • Do not put garbage or food waste in with recyclables

Unacceptable Items:

  • Plastic bags
  • Styrofoam
  • Glass
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Paint and pesticides
  • Electronic waste and accessories
  • Medical waste and pharmaceuticals
  • Waste such as gas cylinders, tanks, rocks, dirt, building debris, flammables and small appliances
  • Pizza boxes with food scraps
  • Milk/juice cartons and drink boxes
  • Newspaper/other paper
  • Plastics that are not bottles

Garbage is collected twice per week.  Recycling and bulk trash are picked up once per week and household hazardous events are held monthly.

By grouping these activities together, we can strive to reduce the total amount of waste our community produces, while offering a mix of collection and disposal options.

The City of Coconut Creek provides four types of solid waste services and participates in a Household Hazardous Waste Program. For more detailed information, please use the links below.
