Cleaning Up After Ian
Clean-up and damage assessment for the trails has begun. The Walking Bridge is closed until future notice and its structural integrity, and repairs needed can be determined. We realize that many use the trails for exercise and to walk their pets. We ask that your use of the trails be minimized and with caution as there will be work crews working on the trails. The safety of all is our primary concern.
If you live alongside the trails, please do not place loose debris near the edge as the machinery used to clean the trail will in all likelihood blow it back into your yard.
Residential Storm Debris Drop-Off Sites
Residents can take yard debris to the County’s four residential storm debris drop-off sites during extended hours of operation Monday through Sunday, 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. These hours will remain in effect until further notice.
- Northwest County – 8001 W. Linebaugh Ave, Tampa 33625
- South County – 13000 U.S. 41, Gibsonton 33534
- Hillsborough Heights – 6209 County Rd 579, Seffner 33584
- Falkenburg Yard Waste Site – 350 Falkenburg Road, Tampa 33619
Residents must show a valid Florida ID to receive free yard waste disposal. Bagged waste must be emptied by the resident for disposal because plastic bags can damage mulch-processing equipment.
Regular Curbside Yard Waste Collection
Regular curbside yard waste collection resumes Monday, Oct. 3. At this time, only bagged or packaged yard waste will be collected curbside by your regular waste hauler. Piles of leaves and small twigs must be bagged or placed in containers to be collected curbside.

Residents are reminded that open burning of residential yard waste and household garbage or trash is prohibited in Hillsborough County and that discarding debris in public rights of way is considered illegal dumping.
