What are the residential fees?
You do not pay the fee for curbside collection of trash, recycling, and yard waste monthly. Instead, we assess it through a non-ad valorem fee on your property tax bill. We don't use property taxes to fund trash services and all rates are reviewed annually.
Compared to other cities and counties, our residential solid waste customers pay one of the lowest rates in the state.
What if I’m a renter and don’t have a Property Tax Assessment?
If you are not the property owner, but are authorized to deliver residential solid waste on behalf of the property owner, please present an acceptable Community Collection Center Access and Use Authorization Form to the on-site Community Collection Centers (CCC) attendant. You can also dispose of materials at Hillsborough County facilities by paying the applicable fees for disposal, or contact Solid Waste at (813) 272-5680 to discuss your disposal options.
What if I am a commercial customer?
Commercial solid waste customers pay for disposal services through fees, called tipping fees, charged at the County’s processing and disposal facilities.

- Residential customers are limited to delivering 10 cubic yards of solid waste material to CCCs per year, as part of their annual assessment, which is equivalent to the material that can be put into a vehicle pulling a double-axle trailer or a loaded box/straight truck. For comparison, a loaded pickup truck generally only carries about two cubic yards.
- Once the 10 cubic yard limit per year has been reached, residents will be required to deliver their solid waste material to the Southeast County Landfill or one of the County’s Solid Waste Transfer Stations and pay standard commercial disposal charges, also called tipping fees
- Residents may also dispose of up to 12 tires per year as part of their annual assessment. Tires in excess of 12 per year are required to be delivered to the Southeast County Landfill where residents will pay the tipping fee for tire processing.
