At the designated appointment time, residents/businesses should pull their vehicle into the drop-off zone and remain in their car. Sarasota County Hazardous Waste technicians will remove the items for disposal from the vehicle.
COST FOR DISPOSAL
Disposal for Sarasota County residents is free, however limits may apply. Residents are asked to let us know what they will be bringing for disposal on the appointment request form so that staff can plan accordingly.
