The Solid Waste Department is responsible for properly handling and disposing of all Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generated by the City of Key West. We also collect our City's recyclables. The transfer station is located on Rockland Key.



All of the MSW processed at the City Transfer Station is currently being transported to a Waste-to-Energy Facility in Broward County via a contract with Waste Management of Florida, Inc. Recyclables are taken to the Reuter Disposal and Processing Center operated by Waste Management in Pembroke Pines, FL.



We accept yard waste, construction debris and metal. However, all items must be separated by the customer before bringing it to the site. Customers bringing mixed loads will be directed by the scale attendant to unload these items in different locations on the property. WE DO NOT ACCEPT MIXED LOADS. Household trash may only be transported to the facility by the City's Franchise Contractor according to City ordinance.
The City of Key West is in the process of creating a Solid Waste Master Plan for the City. The goal with this plan is to create a map to guide the City towards increasing our recycling rate, maximizing our waste diversion, and creating a pathway towards a zero-waste community.
