Residents who live in the unincorporated areas of Volusia County are provided waste services through Volusia County’s Solid Waste Division. Residents are charged for service by an annual $255 non-ad-valorem assessment per residential unit.

NOTICE 

Effective March 30, 2020 the Tomoka Farms Road Landfill and the West Volusia Transfer Station will no longer be accepting cash or coins as forms of payment. Payments may be made using Visa and Mastercard ONLY.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but eliminating the handling of cash between drivers and our employees is one more way we can help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

NOTICE: Effective April 1, 2020 FCC Environmental Services will begin providing residential curbside waste collection services to unincorporated Volusia County residents. Click here to learn how this will affect you.

Unfortunately, despite the intentions of well-meaning people across the state, Florida's recycling efforts are not as successful as they could be. There are several reasons for that. The first, most people who recycle have no idea how the journey from the recycle bin all the way to the process of creating recycled materials works. Another problem, many people assume they know what's recyclable - but they don't.
