Florida 75% Recycling Goal

75% Recycling Goal

In 2008, the Florida Legislature enacted House Bill 7135 which created Section 403.7032, Florida Statutes. This established a new statewide recycling goal of 75% to be achieved by the year 2020. Also, the statute directed DEP to develop a program designed to achieve this goal and submit it to the Legislature for approval. DEP submitted its 75% Recycling Goal Report in January 2010.

House Bill 7243

The Legislature passed this bill in 2010. It addressed several of the issues discussed in DEP's 75% Recycling Goal Report.


Here are some DEP rules related to recycling. House Bill 7243 requires some revisions to these rules.

Florida Statutes Regarding Recycling

In addition to the 75% recycling goal, there are some other statutes that affect, either directly or indirectly, the implementation of that goal.
