The Solid Waste Department, ensures that residential and commercial customers receive quality refuse, yard debris and recycling services at reasonable rates from the District’s contractor. The Department ensures compliance with Federal, State and local regulations including a mandate to reduce refuse sent to landfills by 75% in 2010, along with a requirement to appropriately discard hazardous materials, which helps to ensure proper long-term management of our resources and the environment. This department works to keep the community informed on legislation, new programs and the best recycling practices via public outreach.
