Attention Residents in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade Counties:
Broward County’s Permitting, Licensing and Consumer Protection Division issued a warning to residents not to be misled if they receive a letter from “National Department of Renewable Resources”. Apparently this organization says it is authorized to obtain compensation for recycling shortfalls.
This organization claimed that State of Florida passed a law that allows fines to be levied against homeowners who fail to follow the mandatory recycling policies enacted by Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. Full information about Florida’s recycling laws may be obtained from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
