As of October 1st, Coral Springs residents were no longer able to drop off Household Hazardous Waste on weekends at the Broward County Collection Center on Powerline Road. Since the inception of the Household Hazardous Waste Collection program in the 1990’s, Coral Springs, along with 25 other cities, have been part of an Interlocal Agreement whereby the County collected the funds necessary to run the program through the disposal fees at the Waste to Energy facilities. The Agreement with the County expired on July 3rd, but the program was funded through Sept. 30th.
The County gave cities the option to purchase the service for an annual fee, based on population. In the case of Coral Springs, the fee was $250,000 per year. The cities of Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Tamarac, Fort Lauderdale, and Pompano, believed the cost was excessive and chose to not go with the County, rather opting to put out their own bid under the Broward County Cooperative Purchasing Consortium. The lead City, Coconut Creek, has awarded a contract and the participating cities have announced the following collection events for 2014:
Waste Transfer Station: First Saturday of the Month
ONLY: Paints • Electronics • Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (CFLs)
On the first Saturday of each month (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Coral Springs residents may drop off these items at the Waste Transfer Station, located at the west end of Wiles Road at NW 126 Ave.
Two forms of I.D. showing a Coral Springs address are required (Driver's License plus bill, registration etc.)
