The Solid Waste Section is responsible for rule development, solid waste policy, financial assurance compliance, and implementing Florida’s solid waste management program. Technical assistance is provided to the district offices concerning the permitting, compliance, and enforcement activities associated with solid waste facilities. These facilities can include landfills, material recovery facilities, transfer stations, composting/processing facilities, and waste tire management sites. Permitting, compliance, and enforcement issues associated with these sites are managed by the DEP District Offices.
NOTICE: On January 1, 2013, a substantial portion of solid waste permitting was moved from DEP’s District offices to the Solid Waste Program & Permitting Section in Tallahassee. Click here for more details.
