Sarasota County will continue to monitor the situation and modify or cancel appointments according to state and local guidelines.

 

ARRIVING FOR APPOINTMENT AND DISPOSAL PROCESS

Residents/businesses should arrive no more than 15 minutes early for their appointment. Anyone arriving early should wait in their car in the parking lot until the appointment in front of them has departed the drop-off area.

At the designated appointment time, residents/businesses should pull their vehicle into the drop-off zone and remain in their car. Sarasota County Hazardous Waste technicians will remove the items for disposal from the vehicle.

 

COST FOR DISPOSAL

Disposal for Sarasota County residents is free, however limits may apply. Residents are asked to let us know what they will be bringing for disposal on the appointment request form so that staff can plan accordingly.

Applicable disposal rates will apply for businesses. Payment must be made by credit/debit card (cash and/or checks will not be accepted).

Hazardous Waste at Your Business 

“Hazardous waste” is a legal term that describes certain toxic, ignitable, corrosive, or reactive wastes generated in manufacturing, industrial or other processes.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offers simple guides to explain hazardous wastes and help you determine whether you generate hazardous wastes and are subject to regulation. Your company is responsible for making hazardous waste determinations correctly.

The Sarasota County Hazardous Waste Management Office works in tandem with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Hazardous Waste Regulation Section to provide compliance assistance to commercial enterprises within the county.

Sarasota County's Project Green Sweep Program

Project Green Sweep offers a responsible, cost effective method to properly dispose of small quantities of hazardous and regulated wastes that are banned from landfill disposal to qualified businesses in Sarasota County.

FDEP Operation Cleansweep

Operation Cleansweep provides farmers, nursery operators, golf course operators, and pest control services a one-time safe and economical way to dispose of their cancelled, suspended, and unusable pesticides. Some of these materials are very old and in containers that are deteriorating.

Some, such as chlordane and DDT, are so toxic to humans and hazardous to the environment that they are no longer allowed to be used.

Proper disposal can be costly and a regulatory burden for small farmers and other pesticide users.

Operation Cleansweep offers an opportunity to avoid these formidable barriers and to promote safe and environmentally sound pesticide use, handling and disposal. NOTE: this opportunity is available on a first-come, first-served basis and funding is limited.

For additional information please visit the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Operation Cleansweep website.
