Santa Rosa County has partnered with ECUA to resume single stream recycling in Santa Rosa. There are two recycling drop off sites available for residents that do not have curbside recycling. Recycling can be dropped off at no charge:
Residents who do not currently have curbside recycling are encouraged to contact their service provider to inquire if curbside recycling is an available service option.
North End Residential Solid Waste Franchise
The county is currently exploring expanding the solid waste service provider franchise to areas north of the Yellow River. A franchise agreement would mean that only one hauler would be able to provide residential curbside service in a specified area, it would not impact business or commercial accounts. If approved, service could begin as soon as January 1, 2015 and is expected to include residential curbside recycling, yard waste and bulky waste pickup in addition to household solid waste services.
In 2010, the commission franchised residential curbside collection in generally the 32563 and 32566 zip codes with two service providers. The franchise agreement gave residents twice a week garbage pickup, once a week recycling pickup in a wheeled cart, yard waste pick up every other week and bulky waste pickup on demand all for only $51.45 per quarter with Waste Pro and $53.40 per quarter with Waste Management.
