Pasco County to Limit Residential Trash Drop-Offs                                                           

Sites to accept residential bagged garbage/commercial hauler drop-offs only 

Beginning Saturday April 4, Pasco County Solid Waste will be limiting access to both the West Pasco Resource Recovery and the East Pasco Transfer Station.  Only commercial vendors and customers with bagged, household waste will be able to drop off trash.

Both locations will only accept the following: 

Residential bagged garbage
Commercial landscaping yard waste
Commercial junk removal services

The following non-commercial deliveries will NOT be accepted:

Mixed furniture, non-municipal garbage, metal, etc.
Paint or other household chemicals
Yard trimmings not delivered by a commercial lawn service or hauler
Televisions, computer monitors, printers, etc.
Refrigerators and other large appliances
Any other non-bagged household garbage

Both the West Pasco Resource Recovery Facility at 14606 Hays Road in Spring Hill and the East Pasco Transfer Station at 9626 Handcart Road, Dade City are serving more customers than usual, presenting an increased risk of COVID-19 exposure for employees and customers alike.  We ask all our customers to please support our efforts and to store loose household items at home for the time being. For questions or more information about these changes, please call: 727.857.2780.
