Spring is the perfect time to trim trees and landscaping and remove unwanted debris. Look up before you begin pruning and avoid trimming near power lines. Hollywood residents may drop-off materials, free of charge, at any of the three Residential Trash Transfer Stations in Broward County. Drop-Off Centers are open every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In the event of an emergency, these locations may offer extended hours to accommodate additional debris. Be sure to call 954.765.4999 for the latest Drop-Off Center information and hours of operation.
• South Drop-Off Center – 5601 W. Hallandale Beach Boulevard, West Park, FL
• Central Drop-Off Center – 5490 Reese Road, Davie, FL
• North Drop-Off Center – 2780 N. Powerline Road, Pompano Beach, FL
When winds greater than 35 mph are forecast to occur in the City of Hollywood within the next two days, residents should plan for sanitation services to be suspended. For example: if the City learns on a Wednesday that winds are forecast to be greater than 35 mph on Friday, notice will be given on Wednesday that sanitation services will be suspended on Friday. Services will remain suspended until winds fall below the 35 mph threshold. This is for the safety and security of collection crews operating high profile collection vehicles.
Residents should not place items out for collection until notice is given that service has resumed. Failure to comply with these rules may result in a code violation and possible fines.
Recovery efforts begin as soon as it is safe after a storm passes. City of Hollywood contractors clear primary corridors and access to critical infrastructure and facilities, then secondary roadways, neighborhood streets and then alleyways. Garbage (solid waste) collections will resume first and will likely be on a modified schedule. This will be followed by the return of recycling services and commingled collections as conditions allow. Finally, as recovery progresses, the City will return to the normal collection schedule.
There are things you can do to help speed the process in the event of an emergency. Visit and click on “Hurricane Season” under City News. Learn more about how you can prepare for this hurricane season at
