Residential Services

The City of Deerfield Beach is the sole provider of curbside garbage services for residences within the City. Services include garbage cart pick-up, bulk trash pick-up, and roll-off services.

Recycling collection is currently SUSPENDED. You may use your blue cart for overflow garbage if it does not all fit in the brown cart. The blue cart will only be collected on your "recycling" day.

Residents can continue bringing all program recyclable materials to the City’s Recycling Drop-Off Center located at 401 SW 4th Street, Deerfield Beach, FL. The city has also placed two additional community recycling containers at the locations below.

  • Main Beach Parking Lot, 149 SE 21st Ave, Deerfield Beach, FL

About your carts: 

  • The brown cart is for garbage and the blue cart is for recycling
  • Carts are property of the City of Deerfield Beach, and are assigned to each physical address.
  • Periodically rinse with soap and water.
  • Do NOT spray paint or mark the cart.
  • Keep lids closed to prevent exposure from weather and to limit the spreading of debris in neighborhoods on windy days.
  • Carts need to be left at that property should you move.
  • Should you need an additional cart, they are available for an added charge of $14 per month.
  • All carts contain a special radio frequency ID tag (RFID) that identifies the home’s address. Each time a cart is serviced, it is scanned, and the data collected is used to help maintain efficiency.
