Residents encouraged to properly dispose of used sandbags
Pasco County Government is opening an east- and west-side sandbag station to help residents protect their property from potential flooding in river communities throughout Pasco County. The county is also opening two sandbag disposal sites for residents to properly dispose of used sandbags.
• Dade City Police Dept., 38042 Pasco Ave., Dade City
Sandbag locations are self-serve and are open to Pasco County residents. Sandbags will be provided, while supplies last, but residents should bring their own shovels.
• Magnolia Valley Golf Course Clubhouse, 7223 Massachusetts Ave, New Port Richey
*Sandbags should be disposed of through the proper avenues to avoid damage to storm drains and pipes, as well as to prevent draining issues and long-term property issues.
