Out of the Adams Recycling Zone But Want Recycling Service? Do this!
Are you on the outside looking in at our recycling service area in Santa Rosa County? We hate it too! Unfortunately, we are in the long process of making the economics of recycling work for our area – and that means a slower than we’d like rollout of recycling to our customers.
Like other businesses, we need to at least break even on recycling services in an area in order to offer recycling to an area. Most, if not all, waste removal companies are able to make money based off two variables, how close together stops for service are and how many stops there are total. For example, it makes us more money to pick up 100 stops in a subdivision than it does to make 100 stops over 100 square miles. We are able to use less gas and spend less time driving! This has a lot to do with how our recycling rollout takes place.
Pace and the immediate surrounding areas got recycling first, because they are the most dense population area in northern Santa Rosa County and they had high levels of enthusiasm for a potential recycling route (lots of people signed up).
There Is Something You Can Do To Speed It Up!
Luckily, we have the power of the internet and Survey Monkey to make good decisions for citizens in Santa Rosa County and for our bottom line. Because of these technologies, we can continue to provide high-quality service at the best possible value.

BIG NEWS! Okay, big for us! We can officially bring twice weekly trash service back to South Santa Rosa County and compete on the open market. Hours ago, Judge Dickey overturned an emergency injunction sought by Waste Pro that had temporarily paused the permit awarded to Adams by the Santa Rosa County Commission. More importantly, Judge Dickey made her ruling “with prejudice” resolving the matter permanently.
