Northeast District - Waste Management Programs

bulldozer cleaning waste
: To assure Floridians that their health and their environment are being protected through prevention and reduction of pollution and the proper management of waste and hazardous substances.

Mission: To protect public health and the environment through promotion of waste management practices that prevent or reduce waste generation, ensure proper management when waste generation cannot be prevented, prevent discharges of chemicals and petroleum products contained in storage tank systems, and ensure adequate and timely cleanup of the environment from contamination caused by discharges of hazardous substances and petroleum products. Most of the people in waste management are specialists in a scientific or engineering field, such as geology, chemistry, biology, civil engineering, environmental engineering or chemical engineering.

  • Hazardous Waste-cleanup and disposal of hazardous waste
  • Waste Cleanup- cleanup of non-petroleum contaminated soil and groundwater
