Illegal dumping is more than just an eyesore, it is a criminal offense. It depreciates property value and attracts crime to the surrounding area. The cost of collecting illegal dumping affects every citizen of the City.
If you witness an illegal dumping in progress, obtain the tag number and call the Tampa Police non-emergency number at (813) 231-6130. After the Police Department has responded, call the Department of Solid Waste & Environmental Program Management at (813) 348-1146 for collection of the debris if it is on City right of way. If the illegal dumping occurred on private property, report it to a Solid Waste Inspector at (813) 274-5545.
We thank you for your cooperation in keeping our City clean!
