Dumping Ordinance


The Franklin County Dumping Ordinance prohibits littering, dumping, placing or disposing of any trash, debris, house construction or repair materials or products of clean-up, anywhere except on private property with the permission of the property owner. Franklin County is enforcing this ordinance at the request of the Alligator Point Taxpayers Association (APTA). Alligator Point has been the recipient recently of illegal dumping by both Franklin County and Wakulla County residents. Property owners are not authorized to dump or place the items mentioned above on property other than property they own, or have an owner’s permission. There are penalties determined by the amount of debris dumped.

APTA respectfully request property owners to limit the placement of debris in front of and on the property they own, or have permission of the property owner. To read the complete ordinance click here.
