City of Tampa Solid Waste Aggressively Cleaning to Restore Tampa’s Beauty


City of Tampa Solid Waste and Environmental Program Management is aggressively working to collect and disposal of debris resulting from Hurricane Irma. 

The following debris collection and drop-off services will be offered to City residents:  

  • Residential and Commercial regular garbage collection resumed service today, Tuesday, September 12, 2017.  Customers normally serviced on Monday were collected today; Tuesday collection will occur on Wednesday; Wednesday collection will occur on Thursday; Thursday collection will occur on Friday.
  • Storm specific related debris collection will begin on Thursday, September 14, 2017 and continue through Friday, October 13, 2017.  Debris should be separated by material type (i.e. white goods, construction material, vegetative debris) placed at the curb.    
  • McKay Bay Disposal Facility re-opened today at 7:00am and began accepting storm debris.  As residents and business disposal of added debris, wait times are expected to be longer than usual.

We appreciate your patience during this time.  Changes will be communicated as they become available.
