The Division of Solid Waste Management provides safe and secure long term disposal of solid waste for the citizens of Citrus County. The Central Landfill is a modern engineered double lined facility that accepts over 100, 000 tons of household, commercial, and industrial waste per year.
In addition to offering disposal services, the Division also recycles yard waste, scrap metal, end-of-life electronics, waste oil/filters, antifreeze, cooking oil, tires, car batteries, mercury, concrete and clean white Styrofoam.
The Division operates as an enterprise fund, where revenues are generated by user fees charged at the landfill. A Solid Waste assessment on each residential unit in the County ($20 per year), and a fee charged to businesses with waste disposal service allows the County to provide non-revenue generating services such as Bulky Item disposal, Household Hazardous Waste Programs, County-wide Solid Waste Code Enforcement and Litter Pick-up, Adopt-a-Highway and Snag-n-Bag Aquatic Litter Programs, Future Solid Waste Planning, Construction and Capital Projects.
