Recycling services suspended while ECUA repairs facility

Santa Rosa County has temporarily suspended recycling services. The Emerald Coast Utility Authority (ECUA) Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) has temporarily closed due to equipment malfunctions and supply chain issues related to repair parts. As a result, the MRF will not be able to receive recycling materials until further notice. Due to the temporary closure of the MRF, Waste Pro (franchised waste hauler for the county) will suspend recycling services effective June 22 until the facility reopens.


Those who subscribe to Waste Pro’s recycling services are asked not to place recycling items into their blue bin. Please place recycling items with regular trash in the gray container. Do not place recycling containers at the curb after June 22 as it will not be collected during this time.

Customers WILL receive a credit on their next billing cycle.


The county anticipates the recycling facility to re-open in August. Customers will be notified when recycling services resume. Waste Pro will update customers when available. Waste Pro customers can call 850-365-1900, for more information. 


Residents who utilize non-franchised haulers are encouraged to reach out to them regarding any changes in their recycling collections.


For more information, residents should contact their garbage service provider.
