“It is the mission of the Solid Waste Division to provide clean, efficient, and reliable service for collection and disposal of solid waste material within the City of Tavares while maintaining volunteer recycling programs through educational initiatives.”
This Division is comprised of seven personnel. The City currently provides twice per week garbage collection and once per week collection of yard waste and bulk items to all single family residences. Collection begins at 7:00 a.m. and runs Monday-Friday. This Division also oversees the curbside recycling collections and commercial dumpster collections provided by the City’s franchised hauler, Waste Management. Solid Waste services are funded solely by commercial franchise fee revenue and monthly customer user fees, not taxes.
