Hillsborough Co., FL-- The county has scheduled an additional public meeting to give residents who receive their garbage collection from the County another chance to learn more about new service options and costs that could go into effect next year.

The final event in a series of six Talk Trash Collection meetings is scheduled Dec. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at All People’s Life Center, 6105 E. Sligh Ave. in Tampa. 

Residents who can’t attend can watch live on the Internet through the Talk Trash Collection webpage, www.HillsboroughCounty.org/TalkTrash. Viewers can also comment through live chat. Each public meeting’s video is being posted on the webpage for viewing after the fact.

As the current solid waste contracts are 17 years old, Hillsborough County conducted a competitive bid process, and is seeking public input from customers on the four collection service options being considered. 

The Dec. 20 meeting will close out the public comment period on the new collection options. Other ways to participate before then include:

Complete information and details, including a question-and-answer page developed using public comments that have been received to date, are available on the Talk Trash Collection webpage.
