Polk County Approves Waste Collection Contracts

BARTOW, Fla. (July 25, 2023) – FCC Environmental Services Florida, LLC and GFL Solid Waste Southeast, LLC have been selected to provide curbside residential solid waste collection services to Polk County Oct. 1, 2024 through Dec. 31, 2029. The current waste collection contracts end on Sept. 30, 2024.

 

FCC will service Area 1 of Polk County. Area 1 encompasses about 65,000 dwelling units in the northwest quadrant of the county. The first year of the contract is valued at $16.9 million. FCC currently services this quadrant.

 

GFL will service Area 2 of Polk County. Area 2 encompasses about 65,000 dwelling units in the northeast quadrant of the county. The first year of the contract is valued at $22.3 million.

 

The two contracts differ in value because of the size difference between the two areas. GFL drivers will log more miles than the FCC drivers.

 

Polk County Waste & Recycling will service Area 3, which encompasses the southern portion of the county. The county’s residents are less condensed in Area 3, south of SR-60, and Waste & Recycling will service about 13,000 dwelling units.
