BROWNFIELDS

In an effort to revitalize existing commercial and industrial sites that have been abandoned or are underused because of real or perceived contamination, this program creates financial and regulatory incentives for voluntary cleanup and redevelopment.

HAZARDOUS WASTE

Hazardous wastes are solid wastes which are reactive, ignitable, corrosive or toxic and are regulated from "cradle-to-grave" by the Department through its federally delegated Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) program. 

POLLUTION PREVENTION

Pollution prevention represents a fundamental change to more efficient ways of using resources. Shifting emphasis from pollution control to pollution prevention is an important component of the Department's mission to protect, conserve and manage Florida's environment and natural resources. 

SOLID WASTE

The solid waste program includes regulation of landfills, construction and demolition debris disposal facilities, transfer stations, material recovery facilities, waste tire processors, and waste-to-energy plants. -

STORAGE TANKS

Storage tanks used to store regulated substances aboveground or underground are annually inspected by staff from local county programs under contract with the Department. Department staff perform inspections as random checks and inspect tanks owned by the contracted programs. Department staff also provide technical assistance to local programs, consultants, and the public.

WASTE CLEANUP

This program provides technical assistance and manages cases involving groundwater or soil contamination which can occur as a result of accidental spills, or through improper use, management, or disposal of materials.
