Hillsborough County Offices, Facilities to Close for Memorial Day
Most Hillsborough County offices and facilities will be closed on Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day.
There will be no solid waste collection (including garbage, recyclables, and yard waste) in the unincorporated Hillsborough County Service Area, which also includes Tampa Palms, Hunter's Green, and New Tampa. For customers whose collection day falls on Monday, normal service will resume on the next scheduled day for pickup of those items.

The following Hillsborough County facilities and services will be OPEN on Memorial Day:

- Hillsborough County's Veterans Memorial Park, 3602 U.S. 301 N., Tampa, FL 33619, is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. with free admission and parking. In observance of Memorial Day, Hillsborough County Consumer & Veterans Services and the Veterans Council of Hillsborough County invite the community to the County's 26th Annual Memorial Day Remembrance at 10 a.m. Sunday, May 28, at Veterans Memorial Park.
Residents who aren't able to visit the park in person can "walk the park" virtually with aerial videos of the memorials, which range from the Seminole Wars through the war in Afghanistan. Displays at the park inspire reflection on the sacrifices of men and women who served the United States in times of conflict, and of their families and friends at home.
