Pasco County DOES NOT ACCEPT paper and cardboard at the curb.
But, there are over 100 paper drop offs county-wide. Nearly every school in Pasco and twenty-five additional county locations have a Green Fiber paper bin to accept all types of paper and cardboard. The program earns revenue for your local fire station, library, park or school depending on where you drop your paper.
The program takes all sorts of paper and cardboard, like: office paper, junk mail, phone books, newspapers, magazines, soft-back books, brown paper bags, white paper bags, cereal boxes, show boxes, and corrugated cardboard.
