Mid Florida Materials was an attendee and exhibitor at the 2016 Recycle Florida Today Conference. The conference took place June 12-14 in St, Augustine. The theme this year was “I Cycle, You Cycle, We Cycle – Recycle”. The theme was aimed at reflecting the new relationships and opportunities that developed within the organization over the last year. The three day conference was developed to educate, inform, and stimulate creativity within the member to aid in reaching the goals that Recycle Florida Today has put forth. Between each workshop, there were networking breaks with the exhibitors. Mid Florida Materials had a great time networking and meeting with all the attendees.
On the last day of the conference Mid Florida Materials was pleased to receive a Certificate of Recognition for our generosity, dedication, and commitment to Recycle Florida Today, Inc. Our landfill foreman Jimmy Ruiz accepted the award on our behalf.

Mid Florida Materials thanks all of the attendees of the 49th Annual Florida Association of Public Procurement Officials, Inc. (FAPPO) Trade Show that stopped by our booth. The turnout for the event was great and we look forward to seeing you all again next year. As you can see in the photo of our booth, we displayed a number of the materials that Mid Florida Materials provides (fill dirt, clay, sand/clay, top soil, mulch, #57 concrete, and concrete fines). All of the items that we had on display come from either our borrow pit or are a result of items we brought into our facility and recycled. Not only were we advertising the materials we sell, we were also letting those who were not aware, that we have recently expanded into the roll off side of the business. We now offer dumpster rentals and roll off services for Class III and C&D Materials. It was a pleasure meeting everyone and we look forward to working with all of the municipalities throughout Florida.
In honor of Memorial Day, Mid Florida Materials will be closed Saturday, May 28th and will reopen on Monday, May 30th. Our hours on Monday will be from 7am to 1pm. We will return to normal business hours on Tuesday, May 31st.
