Community Collection Centers (CCC) - Know Before You Go
- Regular curbside collection - residents are strongly encouraged to use their weekly curbside yard trash collection for disposal of routine yard waste
- Commercial businesses - are not able to use residential folio accounts to deliver yard waste on behalf of Hillsborough County residents. This includes landscaping and tree trimming providers. All commercial use is subject to standard fees.
- What to bring - Photo ID showing the residential address of the property owner and a printed or digital copy of your current tax assessment are required (No ID required for general recyclables; photo ID only for paint and electronics)
- For CCC's with transfer stations - they are primarily used by commercial hauling companies and commercial tipping fees apply. Self-hauling customers may also use the facilities as long as they complete the necessary waste profile form and have been approved. If you need more information email email@example.com or call (813) 272-5680. Commercial facilities that only have yard waste for disposal do not need to obtain approval.
- Trash limits - residential customers are limited to delivering 10 cubic yards of solid waste material to CCC's, per year, as part of their annual assessment. This is equivalent to the material that can be put into a vehicle pulling a double-axle trailer or a loaded box/straight truck. For comparison, a loaded pickup truck generally only carries about two cubic yards. Once the 10 cubic yard limit per year has been reached, residents will be required to deliver their solid waste material to the Southeast County Landfill or one of the County’s Solid Waste Transfer Stations and pay standard commercial disposal charges, also called tipping fees.
- Tires - residents may dispose of up to 12 tires per year as part of their annual assessment. Tires in excess of 12 per year are required to be delivered to the Southeast County Landfill where residents will pay the tipping fee for tire processing.
- Hand unloading only - self-tipping or automated dumping is not allowed at the CCC's, all materials must be hand unloaded
- Northwest County CCC vehicle length - limited to a total length of 35 feet
