Many of us are concerned about recycling materials and saving the environment, and minimizing the amount of solid trash that takes up space in the land-fill. In case you are not aware of the closest drop-off points for recyclable materials, they are included here.

Don't just put your recyclable items out by the curb. Take them to a drop-off point where they will do some good and help others.

If you know of any other sites that collect recyclables or items that should not be disposed of in the trash, please let me know and I will add them to this web page.

Disposing of Other Items & Materials

Landscape & Lawn Debris Curbside Pickup 2x a week, put out with your trash. All trash and lawn debris is picked up on your regular trash days and taken to the Covanta Energy-from-Waste facility to be incinerated (click on image to enlarge it).

If putting out palm trunks or other trees, they MUST be cut up into small enough pieces to be lifted. Otherwise, have the tree service you use cart them off and dispose of them.

Household Electronics & Hazardous Waste Sumter County
Solid Waste Facility & annual Amnesty Day
Unfortunately, Sumter County has not set up a program that is conducive to properly disposing of household hazardous materials, at least not for Villagers.

A fee may be charged.
No charge for Recyclables delivered directly to the CDA (Citizens Drop-off Area):

Hazardous materials must be in a bag, can or barrel; otherwise, it won't be accepted.

There is One Amnesty Day per year each Spring. (How many of us will hold those materials in our garages for a year?)

So, plan on taking your recyclables to one of these drop-off points every few weeks. Save the environment and help others.
