Face Coverings Available to City Residents
The Hillsborough County Emergency Policy group enacted an order to require face coverings in all County businesses, including those in Temple Terrace, beginning on June 24. The County has provided the City with face coverings to disperse to residents who need them. The masks are available in packs of five for pick-up in front of the Temple Terrace Public Library, 202 Bullard Parkway, M-F between 10am and 4pm until supplies are depleted. One pack per person please. Please call 813.506.6406 if you need assistance.
A limited supply of masks are available to the Temple Terrace business community. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sanitation / Recycling
A new municipal solid waste program is coming to Temple Terrace. A 95-gallon trash cart (or 65-gallon if you made that request) will be delivered to residences free-of-charge beginning January 11. You may begin to use the cart upon receipt. Request an additional cart by calling Public Works at 813.506.6560. There is a $75 charge for the additional cart which will be added to your bill.
The City of Temple Terrace suspended collection of recycling in March due to cautions surrounding the Coronavirus. While Hillsborough County was forced to put a temporary halt on their recycling and yard waste program on June 24 due to a significant shortage of truck drivers caused by COVID-19, the City has resumed its complimentary recycling program for residents in the following manner:
- PAPER AND CARDBOARD – Residents should put paper products ONLY in their green bins and place curbside on their regular recycling pick-up day. Bins containing materials other than paper products will not be serviced.
- METALS AND PLASTICS – The City has provided strategically placed receptacles around the City in which residents may deposit metals and plastic goods to be collected for recycling.
- GLASS – The City has discontinued separated glass recycling. Residents should place glass items into their regular garbage, which is taken to a Waste-to-Energy plant for incineration.
