Garbage Information

Pasco County does not pick up your garbage. Please click here for more information about Curbside Garbage Pickup.

Click here for waste hauler contact information. Please note there was a $1.45 monthly increase in maximum pickup rates to account for rising gas prices and to keep up with inflation. 

For any questions about bringing trash, furniture, tires, or other items to County facilities, please call 727-857-2780. Please see below for accepted items.

Pasco County does not pick up your garbage. There is a competitive, open market system for garbage collection in this county. Private haulers compete for your business. Your household garbage and recyclables are picked up by a hauler you pay directly – or in some cases, your Homeowners Association (HOA) or Community Development District (CDD) includes this service.

You must sign up with a hauler in order to receive residential curbside garbage and recycling service. Please note that not all haulers service all areas. Please contact a hauler to see if they service your address.

All haulers who collect household garbage are licensed to do business by the County. By receiving the license the haulers agree to abide by the County ordinance, which says that they must pick up garbage twice weekly and recycling at least twice a month. The maximum a hauler can charge for this service is $18.26 per month or $54.78 quarterly. The hauler can charge for additional services like cart or can rental, re-activation fees, large item or special pickups, and pass through any municipal (city) charges. Some HOAs and CDDs have negotiated lower rates through bulk rate contracts with a hauler.

If you purchase curbside service, whether you are an individual or an HOA/CDD, you get both garbage and recycling service. Recycling is included in the $18.26/month.

(The $65.00 Solid Waste Assessment contained on your annual tax bill pays the County to dispose of your garbage and is separate from the monthly collection fee paid to a licensed hauler.)

Your recycling day will generally not be the same day as your garbage day. Call your hauler for a schedule for both services.
