The Human Resources' Anti-Litter Program is based on the belief that keeping the city of Overtown clean is profitable, creative and practical. As we progress towards our goal of educating the public of the importance of keeping this sub-city clean, we find great value in partnering with county residents, businesses and schools that share our vision. We believe that relationships and collaboration are critical for environmental success, and will help connect you with others who can help you achieve your environmental goals.
The Anti-Litter program division of Human Resources of Miami has a contractual relationship with the Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA).
MOTORISTS: Individuals who do not use car litter bags or litter containers at rest areas, gas stations, and fast food stores will often use the road side as their garbage can. Motorists who litter from their vehicles are subject to tickets and fines.
PEDESTRIANS: Individuals who generate waste while walking, jogging, biking, etc., and do not wait to throw it in a trash could be fined or ticketed for littering.
RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL GARBAGE: If trash containers or dumpsters do not have tight fitting lids, or no lids, then trash can be scattered by animals or the wind. If you have a black city garbage cart without a lid or need an additional cart, please call and request one by dialing 311. If you have a dumpster picked up by a private waste hauler and the dumpster doesn't have a lid or is damaged in any way, call the waste hauler to have it replaced. Also, if you need additional containers, request them from your hauler. If you observe a garbage container with overflowing garbage, please call 311 to report this sanitation violation or click the button above to make a report.
