Recycling Possibly Makes a Comeback in Coral Springs


By Bryan Boggiano

Recycling could return to Coral Springs by the end of the year. 

City Manager Frank Babinec announced at Wednesday’s city commission meeting at City Hall that the city continues to work on plans to resume residential curbside recycling. 

The announcement came as a response to Juliann Langere, a 30-year resident who raised concerns about the environmental effects of not recycling.

She talked to friends and neighbors about the issue, and many of them agreed with her. 

“I was impressed with just how passionate everyone is about the need to protect our environment, our responsibility to global impact, and the need to offset our carbon footprint,” said Langere to the commission. 

She wants to see recycling improve, support the city and the environment, and help make the future better. 

“I would like to encourage Coral Springs to take pride in this responsibility and make this mission your priority again.” 

In response, Babinec said that Public Works Director John Norris and City Attorney John Hearn are working on a new contract. 

Babinec stated that the goal is to have curbside recycling and running by year’s end. 

Coral Springs ended residential curbside recycling pickup in 2020 to cut back on costs. The city has since expanded drop-off recycling locations at Whispering Woods Park and Mullins Park

Hearn said that he hopes to discuss curbside recycling at the commission’s upcoming Sept. 13 meeting.
