Hurricane Ian debris Tampa curbside pickup October 3rd

Curbside debris pickup after Hurricane Irma: Dates, locations and what's accepted

Four Tampa Bay area governments have announced when crews will begin collecting yard waste and debris created by Hurricane Irma. 

Residents in Tampa, Hillsborough County, St. Petersburg, and Pinellas County will soon be able to pile certain items along the roadway, and solid waste crews will collect them, free of charge.

Tampa's solid waste division will pick up any hurricane-related debris as long as it's curbside, starting Monday, October 3.

However, larger debris should be collected by a professional service, like whole trees that require being chopped into smaller pieces. 

Hillsborough County trash collectors say they're assessing their hardest-hit areas first and will target collection services to those areas first, starting the first week of October. 

Pinellas County and St. Petersburg officials said small debris can be bundled, bagged or placed in trash cans for regular pickup by waste haulers. 

For larger debris, property owners need to contact private contractors or bring items to a solid waste collection location.

In other parts of the Tampa Bay area, hurricane-related debris pickup information has not yet been announced, and some standard collection services are being delayed.

Polk County has a hotline, 1-800-375-0844, where residents may report debris that may be dangerous or that obstructs roadways. 

Sarasota and Manatee counties have temporarily delayed regular solid waste services.
