Solid Waste

The Solid Waste Division is responsible for disposing of trash. It plans, builds and operates sanitation and solid waste management facilities in Jacksonville and manages solid waste removal activities.

Operational Activities

Collection

In addition, this activity handles landfill closures and ongoing maintenance after closures for the East, North, and Trail Ridge landfills. They also assess and remedy contaminants found at other closed landfills.
