Effective February 1st, 2024, all residents of Suwannee County are required to present a 2024 Solid Waste Decal (Resolution No. 2022-28) for entrance into any county Collection Site Facility.  All property owners with assessed dwelling(s) on their property are receiving two (2) Decal(s) per assessment. Your assessment information can be found in the “Non-Ad Valorem” section of your 2023 property tax bill, which was mailed by the Suwannee County Tax Collector’s Office in November. You may also visit their website at www.suwtax.com to view this information.

The issuance of the Decal(s), is to ensure appropriate county residents are permitted access to Collection Site Facilities and to minimize the unauthorized use of the facilities.

Instructions for use and placement of Decal(s).

Guidelines for proper use of Decal(s):

  • Decal(s) are specific to the parcel, not the resident
    • If the property is sold, Decal(s) are to transfer to new owners of the property
  • It is illegal to reproduce, distribute, and/or sell county-issued Decal(s).
  • Any misuse of Decal(s) or illegal dumping subjects the violator to a possible $500.00 fine, (Ref. County Ord. Sec. 62-36).

If you are a landlord:

  • It is the responsibility of the property owner to disperse Decal(s) to any lease or rental units properly assessed and identified by the above-listed tax ID.


Replacement of Decal(s) Damaged or Lost:

  • Damaged decal(s) can be replaced at no cost upon return of said damaged decal.
  • Lost decal(s) can be replaced for a fee of $50.00 per decal upon completion of an affidavit and specified backup documentation provided by the landowner (must be the landowner).
