Pasco County Amends Solid Waste Collection/Storage Rules

Pasco County Amends Solid Waste Collection/Storage Rules

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.
