Permitting and Compliance Assistance Program

Solid Waste County Agreements

Several counties have agreements with DEP that are associated with financial assurance. In all cases, financial assurance mechanisms are held and reviewed by DEP staff in Tallahassee. Three counties (Orange, Escambia and Santa Rosa) have interagency agreements with DEP that allow for separate county cost estimates to be covered by the financial assurance mechanisms held by DEP. Three counties (Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach) are delegated to provide permitting and other services for DEP; this includes reviewing and approving closure cost estimates.

Household Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste exhibits one or more characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity or toxicity, making it dangerous. Paint products, pool chemicals, household cleaners and pesticides are typical examples. When disposed of in the municipal solid waste stream or otherwise improperly managed, these materials have the potential of contaminating the ground water - our drinking water supply.
