A New Approach to Municipal Solid Waste
The City has launched a new municipal solid waste program. All residents have received a new 95-gallon wheeled trash cart – or 65-gallon if you made that request. (These are the only two sizes available.) These now are the only trash receptacles that will be serviced by the City. All trash must fit inside the container(s). You may request an additional 95- or 65-gallon cart by calling Public Works at 813.506.6560. A $75 charge for the second cart will be added to your utility bill upon delivery.
