The Solid Waste Division encourages residents to reduce litter and illegal dumping in our communities by helping keep St. Johns County beautiful! St. Johns County's facilities and programs are designed to promote recycling; eliminate illegal dumping, and ensure the environmentally-sound management of Solid Waste.
Illegal dumping is the intentional dumping of solid waste on the county right-of-way in or on public or private property without the knowledge or consent of the property owner. It includes littering along the county right-of-way, which is illegal and very harmful to the environment.
Common items illegally dumped include:
- Household Trash
- Land-clearing and Tree Debris
- Appliances and Furniture
- Construction and Demolition Debris
Our Solid Waste Inspectors are dedicated to investigating and resolving citizen reports of illegal dumping. While not every complaint can be resolved immediately, please be assured we are committed to investigating promptly and taking appropriate action.
Please report illegal dumping by contacting the Solid Waste Division at firstname.lastname@example.org or (904) 827-6980 to further investigate. (Residents are encouraged to provide as much information as possible.)
