The Solid Waste Section is responsible for rule development, solid waste policy, financial assurance compliance, and implementing Florida’s
solid waste management program. Technical assistance is provided to the district offices concerning the permitting, compliance, and enforcement
activities associated with solid waste facilities. These facilities can include landfills, material recovery facilities, transfer stations,
composting/processing facilities, and waste tire management sites. Permitting, compliance, and enforcement issues associated with these sites are managed by the
DEP District Offices.
