Does Pasco recycle white goods/scrap metal? This program is for scrap metal items, such as appliances, hot water heaters, microwaves, metal shelves etc. There is a small fee for refrigerators and air conditioning units. Drop off at the East Pasco Transfer Station or West Pasco Resource Recovery. For use by County residents only.
What about business or commercial recycling? Pasco County does not require nor offer commercial or business recycling at this time. However, a business can engage in recycling on a private basis. The Pasco County recycling office can provide business owners with helpful information on how to "green up" a business. Call the Recycling Coordinator at (727) 856-4539.
