Monroe County contracts with four private franchise operators to provide recycling collection for the Keys, excluding the city of Key West and the Village of Islamorada. Each of the County's private franchise operators covers a specific area. Click for the map.
You do not need to sort your recyclable items. They are sorted at the Materials Recycling Facility. The Monroe County Recycling Brochure has a description of the local service areas
and the contact numbers for your neighborhood. Please call the appropriate
company to determine your collection schedule for recycling and request a
recycling bin if needed.
Place items in the recycling bin provided by the
company serving your neighborhood or any other receptacle that is clearly
marked with the word “Recycling” or the recycling symbol. Recycling bins should not weigh more than 50
pounds when full.
You can also drop off residential recycling items at no charge at Cudjoe Key (MM 21.5) and Long Key (MM68) Transfer Stations.
