Pasco County Amends Solid Waste Collection/Storage Rules

~~Use any container/bags for trash pickup; use container with lid for trash storage~~

In an effort to keep our communities clean, safe and free of blight, Pasco County is changing some solid waste collection and storage rules. The new ordinance amendment requires any garbage stored outside your home for more than a day to be placed in a container with a lid. This change is in response to frequent customer complaints about trash being piled outside homes for extended periods. 

Please note, trash can still be set out at the curb in containers without a lid or in bags within 24 hours of your hauler’s scheduled pickup. You do not need to buy new containers for regular trash service.

Other important changes include:

  • Beginning July 24, 2020, trash containers with lids will need to be used to store any garbage that sits outside your home for longer than 24 hours
  • Waste haulers will have new customer service and truck maintenance requirements
  • Licensed haulers must provide recycling services to businesses, upon request

As a reminder, weekly curbside recycling is available for all customers who have trash service with a licensed hauler.

For more information about Pasco County’s Solid Waste Facilities, please see below or call 727-857-2780. For more information about Pasco County’s Recycling, please call 727-856-4539.

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.
