The Escambia County Waste Services Department owns and operates the Perdido Landfill, an Integrated Municipal Solid Waste Management Facility, in Cantonment.
Integrated Solid Waste Management is a series of complementary actions to reduce quantities of solid waste generated and manage that which is generated in an economically and environmentally sound manner.
Waste/trash at the Perdido Landfill is leveled and compacted by large bulldozers and compactors. At the end of each workday, a layer of dirt or alternative material such as mulch or ash, is placed over the waste to minimize odor, litter and to allow for vector control.FDEP Best Practices - Animal Disposal
