Pasco County, Fla., Seeks to Improve Recycling Efforts to Avoid $190M WTE Facility Expansion

The county is conducting a survey about its recycling program to learn what adjustments can be made to improve the program.

Pasco County, Fla., currently recycles less than 2 percent of its residential waste. And because very few residents are recycling, the county is facing a $190 million expansion of its waste-to-energy facility.

In an effort to get more residents to recycle, the county is conducting a survey about the recycling program to learn what adjustments can be made to improve the program.

ABC Action News has more:

“If you have twice a week garbage pick up, you are already paying for your recycling service. You just have to use it,” said recycling coordinator Jennifer Seney.
