Sanitation / Recycling

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 is poised to resume its complimentary recycling program for residents in the following manner:

  • PAPER AND CARDBOARD – Collection of recyclable paper products will begin the week of June 29. 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 – Beginning on July 6, the City will provide strategically placed receptacles around the City in which residents may deposit metals and plastic goods to be collected for recycling. 
  • GLASS – The City is discontinuing separated glass recycling. Residents should place glass items into their regular garbage, which is taken to a Waste-to-Energy plant for incineration.
