Tampa Solid Waste Opens Two Drop-Off Sites for Storm-Related Vegetative Debris

This information is 5 months 1 week old and may no longer be accurate.

The City of Tampa Solid Waste Department will open two drop-off sites for storm-related vegetative debris which include tree branches, tree trunks, and other leafy material. The two sites will open Wednesday, October 19, 2022. 

City of Tampa residents will have the option to drop off their storm-related vegetative debris for free at the following locations:

22nd Street Park at 7801 N. 22nd Street 

Gadsen Park at 6901 S MacDill Avenue

The two sites will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday until further notice.

Residents are required to have a valid driver's license and a utility bill to confirm their residence in the City of Tampa.

Bagged debris will not be accepted.

If bagged, waste will need to be emptied by the resident. Storm-related vegetative debris will be ground, mulched and sent to organics companies where the mulch will be repurposed. Plastic bags can damage the mulch-processing equipment. 

While drop-off options are available to our City of Tampa residents, solid waste crews will continue to work seven days a week, 12 hours a day to collect as much storm-related debris following Hurricane Ian.
Residents can leave their vegetative storm-related debris unbagged and at the curb for collection.
