Please note that customers enter the landfill at their own risk and Manatee County is not responsible for any damage incurred while using the landfill.

Regular operating hours are Monday-Saturday 8:00-5:00. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Odor Control To comply with Federal and State regulations, the Manatee County Landfill flares off the methane gas that is generated by decomposing wastes. This process has virtually eliminated all of the Landfill's odor as well as provides cleaner air. Currently Manatee County is exploring the idea of harnessing the gas to produce electricity for its neighboring Wastewater Treatment Plant. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Discarded Tires Old unwanted tires are kept separated at the Manatee County Landfill, then transported to a Waste Energy Facility.
