    Solid Waste Division

In 1986 the County adopted a Solid Waste Ordinance and in 2002 the County adopted a Public Nuisance Ordinance. This Division is responsible for enforcing these ordinances. These ordinances establish standards for the storage, transportation and disposal of household trash, furniture, appliances, derelict automobiles, auto parts and other junk and trash. The Division averages more than twenty (20) investigations per day. More than 10,500 violations of the Ordinance have been corrected leaving Jefferson County a cleaner, healthier, more desirable place in which to live.

One result of the adoption of the Solid Waste Ordinance was the establishment of a recycling office. The office works with recyclers, municipalities, schools and civic organizations to encourage better waste reduction methods, recycling and the backyard composting of yard waste.

The Division's hours of operations are Monday through Friday (with the exception of holidays) from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
