The cities of Coral Springs, Parkland, Coconut Creek, Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Lauderdale Lakes, North Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Tamarac have established a cooperative agreement that allows residents several opportunities to dispose of these materials at special one-day events throughout the year.
Parkland’s drop off will be held on Saturday, December 12, 2020. Both from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
