Collection Days And Times

What time will my refuse be collected?

To ensure proper service, refuse should be placed out for collection no later than 6:00 AM on the day of collection. The city-issued carts must be unblocked  (by vehicles, etc.) and placed 3 feet apart for service to be provided.  Carts must be removed by sunset on the day of collection and placed in a location not visible from the street.  

What are my collection days?

Residential household garbage (blue bins) collection service is provided twice per week for all City of Tampa utility customers.  Recycling collection (green bins) and yard waste (containerized, bagged or bundled in less than 50 pound increments) collection service is also provided once weekly.
