collection vehicles powered by Compressed National
Gas engines. Our collection vehicles provide
minimal noise and cleaner emissions
enhance and protect our environment. By
having more efficient services it reduces
carbon footprint, reduces wear and tear
on roads, less fuel is used, and minimizes
traffic in your quiet neighborhood.

Not my circus..... not my monkeys!
So.....south of 44 has the new and improved waste management system. Thank you for the information. Electricity from household waste sounds like Doc Brown from "Back to the Future" powering his Delorian. WOW!

Thank you for this. We are closing at the end of March and this link answered all my questions.

So unless you're going to Walmart, you're going to miss Publix, Ace Hardware, and others who might carry them.


This forum is for helping others as well as getting and giving opinions. People ask for this kind of help all the time, and nobody objects. At least, not until now.



Quite ironic that asking for help from others on the site is "questionable use of the forum," but taking the time and making the effort to criticize...isn't.


Which, of course, begs the obvious question of..."what is the proper use of the forum and who gets to determine such?"

Wondering if "Waste to Energy" will be the process for all The Villages in the future, not just south of 44.

Waste Management (the name of the company) is known for this. The Phoenix Open is sponsored by Waste Management, who does ALL the trash pickup and recycling for this golf tournament. It is a ZERO waste event; 100% of all trash is converted to electricity, recycled into other products, or composted (depending on the trash). 700,000 people worth of participants, visitors, sponsors, vendors, employees, and so on - producing all that trash, and it is ALL converted.

They do some of this here in the Villages. So if you see a WM truck picking up your garbage, it's a good thing. It means that at least some of the trash will be converted (some of it still ends up in a landfill in Georgia).

In Lake County you can get a sturdy plastic recycling tub, marked just for the purpose. Waste Management recognizes them. You can put your recycling stuff in ANY bag, including paper bags, or even small boxes (the empty boxes that contained all those garbage bags you bought on sale, empty cereal boxes will hold a week's worth of cat food cans, the bag you get from Outback Steakhouse take-out or Firehouse Subs will hold a week's worth of daily newspapers, for example). And then put those bags in the recycling tub and set the tub out on the appropriate corner of your lawn on the appropriate day. It's not a big tub but it will hold all your week's recycling just fine.

The clear plastic bag thing is for Waste Management, so they know that the stuff in the bag really is recycling and not garbage. The plastic recycling tub serves the same purpose but is much more hygienic and less unattractive.

The North Sumter County Utility Dependent District (NSCUDD) will hold a Special Workshop on Friday, March 27, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. at the SeaBreeze Recreation Center (Destin/Clearwater Rooms) to review and discuss the long-term Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) to address the disposal of solid waste and recycling.
