Waste Connections to Collect Recycling Every Other Week in Hillsborough

Temporary service change has begun for impacted residents

Hillsborough County Solid Waste customers served by Waste Connections are temporarily receiving residential recycling collection service every other week.

On June 24, Waste Connections temporarily suspended recycling collection because many of the company's truck drivers were unavailable to work due to the COVID-19 coronavirus. The amended every-other-week service calendar will allow Waste Connections to provide dependable recycling collection service as staffing levels gradually increase over the coming weeks.

If a recycling cart is placed at curbside on the wrong day, Solid Waste will have the driver place an orange sticker on it . The sticker will provide the website and phone number where customers can find out their next collection day.

This amended service calendar solely impacts residential Solid Waste customers served by Waste Connections. Residents who are uncertain if they are impacted by the service interruption can find out by visiting HCFLGov.net/trash and clicking on the “Find My Trash and Recycling Schedule” tab. Once on the webpage, input the address, and the waste service provider will be displayed.

Impacted residents can learn when their blue recycling cart is scheduled to be collected by visiting HCFLGov.net/WasteConnectionsRecycling
