Residential Solid Waste Franchise
Santa Rosa County franchises residential solid waste with three providers, divided by area. A franchise is an agreement the county enters into with a service provider to collect curbside residential solid waste. In return for being given special rights to provide the service, the provider is required to provide a defined level of service to residents and the rates are regulated.
