Waste Collection & Recycling Information

Waste Collection & Recycling Information

Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers

Two permanent Pasco County facilities are open to the public throughout the week, replacing Pasco County’s biannual Amnesty Days program. The two facilities are equipped to accept most hazardous waste generated at home, and are located at:

Household hazardous waste includes pesticides, herbicides, pool chemicals, solvents, polishers, and gasoline. The only items not accepted from households are biomedical wastes, explosives, or radioactive wastes, which you are not likely to have at home anyway. The county has a separate program for handling biomedical waste. Please call (727) 857-2780 for more information.

Waste Oil Collection Site Vehicle oil change

The city’s Fleet Division has worked in conjunction with Pasco County agencies for many years to keep hazardous waste oil out of our environment by creating a Public Waste Oil Collection Site. Each year the city has collected and properly disposed of approximately 2,000 gallons of oil waste. “Do-it-yourselfers” are encouraged to bring in your oil!

The Waste Oil Collection Site is open during the regular Public Works Department’s business hours, Monday – Friday from 7:00 AM – 4:00 PM.

Contact Information

For more information on the centers’ operation hours and example of what is accepted, please call (727) 857-2780 or visit one of the centers.


How Curbside Recycling Works:

Purchase your own bin, can, or cart from a local retailer. You may use an existing one or more than one! Or, call your trash hauler to get a cart. If you use your own container, a recycling sticker will identify to your trash hauler; call your trash hauler for a sticker or ask for one from Pasco County Solid Waste at 727-857-2780. Only use the sticker on a permanent container with a lid – Please no laundry baskets, cardboard boxes, or other temporary containers.


Place your recycling at the curb the night before your recycling day.


The following is a list of items are accepted for recycling curbside: Aluminum Cans; Metal Food Cans; Newspaper; Office Paper  (please no shredded paper); Cardboard; Magazines; Junk Mail; and Plastic Bottles, Jars & Containers with Codes #1, #2, #3, #5, & #7.


You may NOT recycle Styrofoam, shredded paper, plastic film or plastic bags of any kind, plastic picnic-ware (plates, cups, utensils, tablecloths), or plastic toys of any kind.


Please note all recycling is managed through Pasco County. For any questions you may contact your waste hauler or the Pasco County Solid Waste Department at 727-857-2780 or visit their website.
