Did you know that Miami Shores residents kept 845 tons of material out of the local landfill by recycling? Reducing our waste stream also keeps down costs, which helps keep your taxes as low as possible. Although we know that paper, cardboard, plastic, metal cans, and glass containers are recyclable, you may not know that batteries, aerosol cans, and container lids are not.
