Solid Waste & Recycling Division

New Trash Collection Service

On January 2, 2012, Republic Services, Inc., also known as Seaside Sanitation will begin providing trash collection services for all subscribing Hernando County residents. Republic Services will replace Central Carting, Inc. (Choice Environmental) and Waste Management, Inc.

All existing solid waste collection franchises expired September 30, 2011. After advertising for sealed bids, on July 19, 2011, the Hernando County Board of County Commissioners awarded the term contract to the lowest, responsible and responsive bidder Republic Services, Inc., also known as Seaside Sanitation. Seaside Sanitation has provided trash collection services in the eastern part of Hernando County since 1979.

Both Waste Management and Choice Environmental agreed to extend their services from September 30th to December 31, 2011, with Republic Services taking over on January 2, 2012.

Hernando County staff has been working closely with Republic Services to ensure an efficient transition and to notify residents of the change. Fliers and Frequently Asked Questions information sheets will be mailed or delivered to all customers by Republic Services in December.

Effective July 1st Trash Collection Boundaries Modified
