The Solid Waste Section of Florida's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is responsible for implementing Florida's solid waste management program. This includes creating rules and policies, and ensuring financial compliance. The Department has six district offices throughout the state.
Solid Waste Facilities include landfills, material recovery facilities, transfer stations, composting/processing facilities, and waste tire management sites. The Solid Waste Section assists with permits, compliance and enforcement of solid waste facilities.
The state of Florida requires solid waste facilities to obtain a financial assurance for closing, long-term care, or corrective action of the facility. A performance surety bond fulfills that obligation. Bond guidelines have been established by the DEP for financial and performance surety bonds. Contact the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to get the bond amounts needed for your project.
The premium that you pay for a Florida Solid Waste Facility Performance Surety Bond will depend on the bond amount required, business and personal financial statements and credit. Our rates start as low as 1% of the bond amount with good credit. Contact our Surety Bond Specialists for a free quote.
