Abstract

Based on a report by the Wakulla County Solid Waste Director (Appendix II), approximately 17% of the solid waste entering the county landfill each year is comprised of processing wastes from the counties' 13 blue crab processing plants. Eleven of these plants were being serviced by Tri-county Refuse of Apalachicola for $12.50/4 cubic yard container/pick-up. The other two plants were bringing their wastes to the landfill themselves in barrels. Overall, blue crab processing wastes require special handling during daily landfill operations to reduce odors, mainly additional soil coverage. Also, due to normal crab plant operations crab scrap waste is generally delivered to the landfill late in the day making handling difficult before landfill closing time. As a result of these handling problems, blue crab processing wastes are presently costing an estimated 25% of the landfill operating budget per month during peak production months, April - November.
