Curbside Recycling

The City of Tampa's curbside recycling program collects newspapers, magazines, aluminum and steel cans, glass, plastic bottles and aseptic, gable-top beverage containers, on a weekly basis. All City of Tampa residents in single family residences have curbside recycling service available to them. Participation varies according to neighborhood, with an average of 35% citywide. City residents recycle 400 tons of newspaper and 225 tons of aluminum cans, glass bottles and jars and plastic bottles monthly. Recycling collection is provided on a weekly basis on one of the regular garbage days. If you are not sure of your collection day, call the Department of Solid Waste & Environmental Program Management Customer service line at (813) 348-1111 for assistance. Customers are provided one bin but may request a second one at no extra charge.
