Welcome to the Solid Waste Division

The Solid Waste Division is responsible for coordinating residential collection services in the City of Gainesville for trash (household garbage), recycling, bulk items, yard waste and other materials. The Solid Waste Division is also responsible monitoring commercial operations and the enforcement of the City's Solid Waste Code of Ordinances (Chapter 27, Article III).  The Solid Waste Division also sponsors various cleanup projects within the Gainesville community, including the Adopt-A-Street program. The Solid Waste Division is located at 405 NW 39th Avenue with weekday hours from 8 AM to 5 PM.
