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.
