Commercial Sanitation Services

The City of Temple Terrace provides commercial refuse collection to all business locations in Temple Terrace. There are three commercial options to choose from depending on the size and type of business being serviced: commercial cans, compactors (emptying only), and dumpsters.

Option 1

Small business locations may choose the commercial cans option for $26.21 per month. The business would provide their own garbage cans (limit of four cans), which must be no larger than 32 gallons. These cans would need to be placed outside for garbage collection on their twice-weekly, scheduled service days.

Option 2

Many larger businesses and multi-family establishments use a compactor for their container. The city does not provide or service the compactor - the city empties them either on a schedule or by request. The compactor must be kept in a city approved enclosure.
