Hazardous Waste for Businesses
  • Hazardous Waste Laws prohibit improper disposal
    by commercial entities. The Solid Waste
    Management Department CAN NOT ACCEPT hazardous
    waste from businesses at our Household Hazardous
    Waste Centers
  • The Solid Waste Management Department offers an
    alternative in order to promote safe hazardous
    waste disposal for commercial customers.
    Businesses may bring their hazardous waste to the
    Naples Recycling Center on clean out days. Using
    this method the business will receive our
    contracted prices and will not pay the stopping
    fee. The transaction is between EQ Florida and
    the business the manifest must be signed and all
    costs paid by the businesss representative.
    Contact 252-2508 for more information.
