Pasco County offers many environmental and hazardous waste programs for homeowners and businesses. Some of these programs have been ongoing for years and others are developed as new environmental issues come to light. All programs are oriented towards achieving one major goal: to protect human health and our environment. Several of these programs target human health and the environment directly while others reach this same goal indirectly.
Pasco County invests lots of time and energy educating our county residents, young and not so young alike, through the school system for youngsters and through workshops, associations and civic clubs for our adult population. The County provides speakers to lecture on a variety of subjects and can accommodate residents interested in touring some of our facilities.
Hazardous Waste is a component of the integrated and comprehensive solid waste management system for the citizens of Pasco County.
Our goals are:
To address hazardous waste levels generated in order that residents and small businesses of Pasco County may dispose of hazardous waste in an environmentally-safe manner and remove such materials from the municipal solid waste stream.
To apply industry-acceptable methods of preventing marketable raw materials from entering the waste stream.
In addition to our formal programs, County staff participates in numerous public events including Earth Day, the County Fair, Coastal Cleanup, Health and Safety Expos, planned days, Emergency Managements events and other public activities.
