To minimize the threat to public health and the environment, Solid Waste Financial Assurance requirements were adopted in 1984 to secure the proper closing of solid waste management facilities operating in the state of Florida. When demonstrating proof of financial assurance, owners or operators can choose from a list of approved financial mechanisms that best meet their individual needs. The dollar amount of financial assurance required is directly tied to the current department approved closure cost estimate. Our primary responsibility is full compliance with all solid waste financial assurance requirements. This is accomplished by providing any assistance necessary to facility owners and operators as well as provider companies attempting to meet rule requirements.

For specific information about Solid Waste Financial Assurance (estimates, forms, provider companies, etc.), please choose from the links on the right under “Highlights”.
