  and personal music devices.

- Digital clocks.

Furniture collection

Solid Waste holds monthly furniture collection events at varying recycling centers throughout the county to provide convenient locations for citizens to bring their old furniture. Solid Waste then transports the furniture to the landfill. Click here for a calendar of dates and locations.


If you were provided trash bags, protective equipment, safety items and your very own road sign, would you help clean up the litter along just two miles of roadway at least four times a year? Approximately 40 groups and organizations do just that by participating in Solid Waste's Adopt-a-Road program, accounting for about 80 miles of clean, county-maintained roadway. Click here for an application to adopt a road.

Sharps program

Residents can dispose of hypodermic needles or other sharps in containers at special kiosks located at each of the 18 recycling centers and obtain a free replacement container with each disposal visit. First-time participants should see the recycling center attendant on duty or call Solid Waste at 352-671-8465 for more information.
