Solid Waste Inspectors
The Department of Solid Waste & Environmental Program Management Code Enforcement Division's primary focus is to educate and instruct citizens regarding proper solid waste disposal. Invitations to make presentations at Neighborhood Meetings are welcomed. The function of the Solid Waste Department Code is to improve the aesthetics of the City of Tampa by keeping all City rights-of-way free of accumulations of debris. Officers handle a variety of complaints and inquiries regarding disposal of solid waste, as well as illegal dumping on the City right-of-way. Officers also investigate the use of the McKay Bay Refuse and advise citizens regarding their free disposal privileges.
