Waste Resource Management

City of Tampa Solid Waste System uses various disposal methods to manage and monitor waste materials as it moves through the waste stream. The McKay Bay Waste-to-Energy Facility is the primary disposal method, and generates enough electricity to supply up to 15,000 homes. Our McKay Bay transfer Station receives wastes from the solid waste department collection crews, other city departments, private waste haulers, and residential utility customers.
