Waste Wizard

Manatee County Recycling has launched a new solid waste & recycling material look-up tool called “Waste Wizard.”  Our goal is to educate County staff and residents to go online and get their answers and lower our call volume. Not sure how to properly dispose of something? Use our Waste Wizard to learn how to properly recycle or dispose of materials.  You can do this by going to Try it out and search for materials like "Newspaper," "Wrapper," "Pool chemicals," "Sharps," or "Clothes." Residents can also sign up to receive, HHW & E-Scrap collection reminders through methods of email, phone call or text message. Attached you will find more details on how to navigate the program and educate the residents. If you have any questions, please contact Mary De Jesus by email or call.

Thank you,
