Drop off donations and refuse at the same time and place in first-of-its-kind program

Program details

The Donation & Waste Diversion Program began as a pilot in September 2022 when Hillsborough County Solid Waste Management partnered with Goodwill Industries-Suncoast, Inc. to rescue reusable items from ending up in landfills.

This program allows Hillsborough County residential solid waste customers to donate items and toss trash in one stop, saving time while making a positive social and environmental impact.

Don't ditch it; donate it

We encourage you to donate items instead of throwing them out. It prevents waste in landfills, helps those in need, and you may get a tax deduction with a donation receipt.

The following collection centers allow residents to donate and discard items.

Who can donate

The program is only for Hillsborough County residents who pay the annual solid waste assessment on their property tax bill and get curbside waste collection from the county.
