Yard Trimmings and Landscaping Waste

Residential Yard Trimmings: This disposal service is NOT intended for residential materials that can be collected at the curb by Waste Management. It is intended for yard waste items that are between 10 and 20 inches in diameter, lengths between 6 and 8 feet, or bundles that weigh more than 40 pounds. Yard trimmings in plastic trash bags are prohibited. Yard Trimmings are not accepted from commercial business at this location.

Electronic Waste Materials: To improve our services to the community we now collect E-Waste at the curbside and will no longer accept E-waste at our Mini-Transfer Stations. Schedule curbside E-Waste service by completing the E-Waste Curbside Pickup Request form.

Business Participation: Businesses now have the opportunity to participate in the County's Recycling Program by dropping off their recyclable materials: Cardboard, Mixed Paper, Newspaper, Plastics, Aluminum & Steel Cans, and Glass. All other waste materials from businesses are prohibited at these facilities.

Prohibitions: Putresible waste, such as household garbage that decomposes and becomes foul smelling and rots, is not accepted at these facilities from residential or business customers.

C.A.R.E.’S Project REUSE Stores at each facility: CARE (Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies) sells discarded, useable household items at both facilities. Donate to CARE, rather than discard, and the sales proceeds help victims in Charlotte County.

Chemical Reuse Shop at Mid-County Mini-Transfer Station: Visit the county's Chemical Reuse Shop at Mid County Mini-Transfer & Recycling Facility and take home anything from motor oil to furniture polish to house paint for FREE. The Chemical Reuse Shop is located inside C.A.R.E at the Mid County Facility only and residents must sign a waiver of liability to receive the products.
