Debris Removal Update (9/18/17)

Dear Cutler Bay Residents,

We are pleased to report that Miami-Dade County’s Solid Waste Management Department is in Cutler Bay, and working to remove tree debris from the swales!    

Important County Guidelines for Debris Cleanup

Residents are strongly encouraged to create two separate curbside hurricane debris piles – one for hurricane yard trash only and the other for household trash items such as furniture, carpeting, fencing, etc.

  • Fencing can be placed at the curbside as hurricane debris. Keep wood, PVC and chain link fencing out of the piles of tree waste – as much as possible and where practical.
  • Residents are reminded not to place trash on the right-of-way of private property or on vacant lots.
  • Residents who no longer have a garbage cart should order a replacement cart by calling 311.
  • Curbside recycling service has resumed.

The County's Neighborhood Trash and Recycling Centers continue to observe extended operating hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until further notice. Service area residents can drop off household trash, yard waste and small amounts of hurricane debris. Guidelines regarding truck and trailer sizes are still being observed.


The Town of Cutler Bay and Miami-Dade County has been working diligently to clear roadways of debris.  The County reports that normal garbage collection has resumed, and all County-managed roads have been cleared of debris as of 2pm on Sunday, September 17, 2017.  Road clearing activities consist of pushing debris from the streets onto the swale for later removal by the Miami-Dade Department of Solid Waste Management or their contractor.

Likewise, the Town has pushed all debris from interior roadways for later removal by the Miami-Dade County Solid Waste Management Department.  Debris in the roadways of private communities do not fall within the jurisdiction of the Town of Cutler Bay.  These roadways will be cleared by the community’s Homeowner’s Association. 

The County is working around the clock to collect the debris and ask for our patience.   Please know that it took the County almost 90 days after Wilma to collect all of the hurricane debris; and this is a much larger storm.

Please continue to monitor Town eNotifications and the Latest News section of our Town website. The Town Hall Building is open, and staff is available from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday thru Friday, to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you.
