Solid Waste Assessment & Residential Barcode ID Tags

The amount of waste that can be disposed of without an additional charge is limited. The Solid Waste assessment is only designed to pay for typical, daily household garbage. Re-roofing, remodeling or tearing down a house is not covered by the assessment. Tree, bush and grass clippings are included but, land clearing is not. The disposal of boats, jet skis or any other vehicle is subject to a disposal fee.

How to Obtain an ID Tag
Decals are obtained from Facility Attendant at any Solid & Waste & Recycling location when you present your drivers license as proof of residency or tax bill as proof of solid waste assessment.

Note: All vehicles are subject to load inspections.

  • Rental residents may obtain an ID tag by providing identification and the property owner's name or address.
  • Household Hazardous waste is accepted from residents of Hernando County only. Residents of Citrus or Pasco Counties should call their respective county for information or disposal:
