Located just off of I-75 at the Hwy 470 interchange at Lake Panasoffkee, our operations are in the heart of the county. With I-75 located within one-half mile of our facility, and the Florida Turnpike within 6 miles, we are a viable disposal option for commercial waste haulers. Major markets are within easy driving distance:

  • Orlando - 40 miles

  • Jacksonville - 138 miles

A.C.M.S., Inc. has designed and planned for a facility that will meet the solid waste disposal needs for Sumter County and surrounding areas well into the next century. Our final build-out plan anticipates a volume of 109,155,000 cubic yards of air space. That is 83+ years of permitted air space!

Phase I construction consists of 8,500,000 cubic yards permitted by Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
