Solid Waste & Resource Recovery (Landfill)
It can be hazardous to our dedicated sanitation workers to put out trash without bagging it first. Please help keep sanitation men and women safe by bagging all garbage for curbside trash pickup.

The main goals of the Solid Waste and Resource Recovery Department are:
- To address hazardous waste levels generated in order that citizens 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 preventable marketable raw materials from entering the waste stream
- To provide an integrated and comprehensive solid waste management system for the citizens of Pasco County.
We strive to reach these goals by:
- Operating the County's household hazardous waste collection and storage facilities and to manage the state mandated Small Quantity Generators Inspection Program to address business and hazardous waste generators.
- Providing leadership and direction in the employment of available resources to comply with County policies, County ordinances and state and federal regulations regarding solid waste management.
- Supervising the Resource Recovery assessment program, the Hazardous Waste program, and the Solid Waste Recycling program; to maintain continued involvement in the operation of the Resource Recovery Facility and associated landfill expansion and development; and to oversee capital projects as funded by bond issues.
