Facts About Florida Landfills

Boca RatonAfter opening our latest office in Boca Raton, we’ve become increasingly interested in waste removal in Florida. We know, you must be too. In any case, we did come across some facts about landfills that are sure to catch the interest of at least a few Florida residents.

  • The smallest landfill is located in Glades County, having a total land area of 40 acres.
  • The state of Florida has 163 active Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris disposal facilities.
  • The landfill in Okeechobee is one of the ten largest in the country, receiving roughly 2,640,000 tons each year.
  • In 1980, Florida had approximately 500 open dumps. During this time period, it was a common practice to either burn or use one of these open dumps in order to alleviate the solid waste
  • Orange County Landfill receives approximately 2,100 TPD of waste within a total site area of 5,000 acres.
