Solid Waste Services goal is to
develop and provide residents of the City of Sanford with the
cost-effective debris collection program consisting of yard waste and
bulk trash pick-up that will insure a better appearance within the city.
The Division also maintains approximately 20 acres of City lots, mows approximately 115 miles of city right-of-way and approximately 75 miles of Department of Transportation right-of-ways as well as sidewalk cleaning, curb cutting, litter pickup, graffiti removal and spraying weed killer.
City residents pay a $270 solid waste fee annually. This fee helps subsidize the yard waste cost and garbage cost as well as the cost of the operation of the compost facility.
