2023 Solid Waste Decals

Collections sites are for the use of Suwannee County residents only

Projected Decal & Mailing timeline

  • Decals in production will be received around 1/18/23
  • Mailout production will be in the latter part of February; at the beginning of March, decals will be mailed.

Current 2022 decals will remain in effect until June 1st, allowing for a reasonable transition into the 2023 decals.

New Year 2023 Assessment and Decal issuance

  • January 1st, the prorated assessment starts at $225, reducing every first business day of the calendar month.
  • 2022 decals will be issued till 2023 becomes available.
  • Documentation will be made on the issuance at that time of issue, and 2023 replacements will be mailed out to the designated address, or they will be notified when they’re available for pick up.

Effective June 1, 2023, all residents of Suwannee County are required to present a 2023 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 2022 property tax bill, which was mailed by the Suwannee County Tax Collector’s Office in November. You may also visit their website site at  to view your tax bill. 

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).
  • Decal(s) can be issued to the property owner at the County Administration Office or the Building Department Office.

The permit is made of a plastic material and is designed as a static cling decal for easy placement and removal. It shall be placed on the inside lower left corner of the windshield in plain sight and for easy viewing by Collection Site Attendants.
