F.S. 403.713
403.713 Ownership and control of solid waste and recovered materials.
(1) Nothing in this act or in any local act or ordinance shall be construed to limit the free flow of solid waste across municipal or county boundaries provided such solid waste is transported or disposed of pursuant to the provisions of this part. However, any local government that undertakes resource recovery from solid waste pursuant to general law or special act may control the collection and disposal of solid waste, as defined by general law or such special act, which is generated within the territorial boundaries of such local government and other local governments which enter into interlocal agreements for the disposal of solid waste with the local government sponsoring the resource recovery facility.
(2) Any local government which undertakes resource recovery from solid waste pursuant to general law or special act may institute a flow control ordinance for the purpose of ensuring that the resource recovery facility receives an adequate quantity of solid waste from solid waste generated within its jurisdiction. Such authority shall not extend to recovered materials, whether separated at the point of generation or after collection, that are intended to be held for purposes of recycling pursuant to requirements of this part; however, the handling of such materials shall be subject to applicable state and local public health and safety laws.
