When first permitted in 1991, the Sun Country Materials Facility was located in, what was then, rural Hillsborough County. Since then, rapid suburban growth has encroached and surrounded the landfill on it’s Northern, Western and Southern boundaries. Given its close proximity to residential communities, the facility’s technical and management staff take a very self-reflective view of its operations to design and implement effective nuisance control measures. Sun Country Materials aims to have solid mutually respectful relationships with local leaders, municipal officials and especially the neighbors in close proximity to its operations. These parties are encouraged to contact our Facility District Manager with questions or concerns they may have about our facility.
Waste Connections gives back to its surrounding areas by contributing to youth, environmental, cultural and economic programs.
We’re committed to many local charities and we’re an active participant in numerous special events. In addition, we have speakers who regularly talk to school groups around the county about the solid waste industry and recycling.
Our employees are encouraged to participate in the community by serving on non-profit boards and committees. Many of our employees also serve on local school boards and church councils; they are soccer coaches, tutors and volunteers. We have thoroughly committed to be a good and responsible corporate citizen.
Our parent company, Waste Connections, started building bikes in 2011 for children in need at Christmas time. At Sun Country Materials we embrace the Christmas Promise Bike Build that gives us an opportunity to give back to the community where we live and serve. In 2019 Sun Country Materials, along with its affiliated companies in the Tampa area, were able to raise funds for, build and gift 175 bicycles and safety helmets to organizations helping children in the surrounding area.
