The Town of Davie uses Waste Management automated garbage collection. The phone number is 954-974-7500. To speak with someone from the Town of Davie regarding garbage collection please call Gay Moo Young at 954-797-1045.

Please note that if you live in the Town of Davie you must have garbage service at your residence or Davie business. Solid waste removal is a non ad valorem assessment on your tax bill if you are a single family resident. Not having garbage service is considered a violation of the Town's ordinances.

Residents are provided with a special 96-gallon rollout cart. Collection trucks are equipped with a lifting mechanism on the side that will lift and empty the cart and will return the cart to the ground. The process takes about ten seconds and can be performed without the driver leaving the truck. For a successful pickup to occur, the cart must be placed curbside according to directions.

If you are in a new development, please call Waste Management to set up an account at 954-974-7500. You will not receive a 96 gallon cart until you do.

What are the advantages?

•Garbage is collected more efficiently, which results in a cost saving for residents.

•The system is more uniform, cleaner, and more attractive.

•The cart is animal proof and cannot be toppled by critters.

•The lid is attached, which helps to control windblown litter and odor.

•The cart is always returned in an upright position with the lid securely attached.

What if one cart is not enough?

Everyone will be issued one green garbage 96-gallon cart (toter). One cart holds in excess of three average 30-gallon bags and will be sufficient for most household garbage needs. You can purchase up to 4 additional carts at a cost of $1.54 per month plus franchise fee (for the first additional cart, see below for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th cart). The cost of an additional cart/carts must be pre-paid for the entire year directly to Waste Management. The cost of the first additional cart is $1.54 x 12 = $18.48 $18.48 plus $3.60 (19.50% franchise fee) = $22.08 (annual cost)
