Neighborhood associations can apply to conduct cleanup projects in their community

The Community Clean-Up Program aims to engage residents in the upkeep of their community, preserve property values within neighborhoods, and reduce factors that contribute to crime.

We invite neighborhood leaders to propose projects that will beautify their area and provide residents an opportunity to dispose of large household items not eligible for normal trash pick-up. Residents must provide the labor as an in-kind contribution to proposed projects.


  • Your neighborhood is required to register with our Office of Neighborhood Relations. Visit the page to register.
  • For-profit service providers and local government entitles are not eligible
  • We will not approve pond clean-up applications
  • The program is designated for Neighborhoods and Homeowner Associations located in the unincorporated Hillsborough County
  • Applications must identify a specific area for the roll-off dumpsters
  • A minimum of 10 volunteers are required
