Recycling and Waste Reduction
The Recycling Division is responsible for implementing, monitoring and administering the Department's comprehensive recycling program. This includes curbside and multi-family recycling, yard waste recycling, office paper and commercial recycling programs.NEW! Curbside Program Expansion
The City of Tampa's Department of Solid Waste & Environmental Program Management is excited to announce the addition of plastics # 3-7 to the recycling program. Now you can recycle ALL of your plastic containers curbside!
*Cardboard: Please make sure that cardboard is flattened and cut down to fit in blue bins (a maximum of 3 ft squares). If you have large quantities of cardboard, it may be dropped off, at no charge, at the McKay Bay Refuse-To-Energy Facility at 114 S. 34th Street, Tampa FL.
Recycle your old blue bins: Leave your cracked, broken blue bins curbside on your pick up day for collection (please leave a note on the bin stating that you would like it replaced). The old bins will be taken to the processing facility and recycled.
