Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program Quarterly

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2019

Citrus County Landfill’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Disposal Program offers an additional drop-off day each quarter. The next quarterly Saturday HHW drop-off day will be July 13, 2019, from 9am to 1pm,  230 W. Gulf to Lake Hwy, Lecanto, Fl. 34461.

As a reminder, residents who are able to use our HHW program Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday EVERY WEEK, are encouraged to do so, as this Saturday collection is no different from our weekly program, other than being open on a weekend for residents who work during the week and are unable to use our weekly program.

If any of our Citrus County residents are able to use the weekly House Hold Hazardous Program, please do so, as wait times will be longer on a Saturday HHW drop-off day.

Free household hazardous waste disposal for assessed households, may bring up to 10 gallons (or 60 pounds) of household hazardous waste for proper disposal on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for no additional charge.

Temporary Animal Shelter Opens for Adoptions

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2019

Citrus County Animal Services received test results from Cornell University confirming Pneumovirus in the canine population in the upper and lower kennels. Animal Services is awaiting further test results from Cornell that will be used to determine when to lift the quarantine. Pneumovirus is an upper respiratory virus with no vaccine. Best practices dictate quarantining the afflicted animals until the virus has run its course.

To accommodate continued Animal Control intakes a temporary shelter has been opened at the Fire Station at 9658 S. Pleasant Grove Rd Inverness, Fl. This shelter will allow the public to reclaim or adopt dogs that have become available. Volunteers are welcome to help care for this population while the quarantine is in effect. Animal Services is not currently accepting owner surrender dogs. 

Both the temporary and main shelters are open to the public 10am to 4pm Tuesday through Saturday. The main shelter is open for cat adoptions, purchasing pet licenses, and other normal services. 

For more information on adoptable pets and owner reclaims at the Citrus County Animal Shelter, visit our website or call 352-746-8400.
