For those who work through the week, a need was recognized and is being provided for a Saturday collection day for the months of January, April, July and October.

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 3 day a week, 9 AM - 1 PM 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.).
