Pasco County Cleanup Event Removes Nearly 155 Tons of Trash

The Moon Lake Estates area of Pasco County is a whole lot cleaner thanks to the efforts of Pasco County’s Code Enforcement and Solid Waste teams!  They joined forces the first weekend of March to help the community get rid of nearly 155 tons of trash – nearly double the 78 tons collected in 2021!

Here’s a breakdown:

Hazmat Materials: 25.6 tons collected

Solid Waste Debris: 128.72 tons collected

“We had another amazing year at the Moon Lake Community Cleanup event,” said Commissioner Christina Fitzpatrick.  “It was great to see the community come together for the most successful cleanup in this area to date.  Thank you to the volunteers and Pasco team members who made this event possible!”

Pasco County hosts community cleanup events to give customers a convenient opportunity to get rid of trash, debris and hazardous materials that might otherwise lead to code violations or illegal dumping.
