Household Hazardous Waste

haz-wasteThe Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program provides the citizens of Citrus County the opportunity to safely and properly dispose of their household hazardous waste.

Disposal Days:
Every Tuesday, Thursday & Friday from 9:00 am- 1:00 pm (Except for Holidays - see Holiday Schedule)

Assessed households, may bring up to 10 gallons (or 60 pounds) of household hazardous waste for proper disposal at no additional charge. Any ADDITIONAL quantities will be charged $ 0.35/lbs. plus a $5.00 transaction fee.  

For those who work Monday-Friday, a Saturday collection day is available one (1) time per quarter. Our next Saturday collection is: August 17, 2024 from 9:00am to 1:00 pm.

These weekly and Saturday collection events have proven very successful. Communities have provided an abundance of hazardous waste that otherwise may have been managed improperly. Through the efforts of the Hazardous Waste Program staff, with their technical knowledge of sorting, categorizing, consolidating and/or recycling the products received, the County's cost for hazardous waste disposal continues to decrease.

Citrus County businesses and unassessed households can use the Household Hazard Waste Program at the Landfill for their waste during our weekly collection times, or call to schedule an early morning appointment. Some of the waste products will require a fee. Also be informed that record keeping is required by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (D.E.P.).
