Collection days for Malabar are Tuesday and Friday for garbage, Wednesday for recycling, and Monday for yard waste. Beginning on July 13th, recycling collection will take place on Thursday. July 13th will be the first day of Thursday collection, and July 5th will be the last Wednesday collection.

On February 1, 2021 Town Staff discussed with Town Council the second term renewal of contracted services for all residential & commercial solid waste collection services for the Town or Malabar with Waste Management, the three term contract totals 21 years, and each term consists of a 7 years period.  The contract was awarded in 2014, with the first term expiring on September 30, 2021. Town Council voted to renewal for the second term at that meeting date.

Waste Management informed Council that a renewal of the contract would cause a "signifigant increase" to the cost paid by Malabar residents at the May 17, 2021 Council Meeting. Following Council discussion, on July 13, 2021, Town Staff published a Request for Proposal, RFP #2021-01, Residential & Commercial Franchise Agreement for Solid Waste, Recycling, Yard Waste, and Bulk Waste Collection Services, with a submission date of August 17, 2021. Three proposal submissions were recieved by the Town, Waste Pro of Florida Inc, Republic Services of Florida, and a statement of no response from Waste Management. Review the proposals below:
