HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – How a community looks can impact how residents feel. Illegal dump sites and code violations can affect health, safety, and property values throughout a neighborhood.

To help prevent this, Hillsborough County’s Rapid Response team is offering curbside pickup in Dover for items that normally would require a trip to the landfill or Community Collection Center. 

From Friday, Aug. 26, to Thursday, Sept. 1, Hillsborough County residents who live in the area can put furniture, junk and debris, metal, electronics, and up to five non-commercial tires at their curbside, and the Rapid Response team will haul away the materials. Items must be placed out by 5 a.m. on the days of collection; placement the night before is recommended. 

Disposal is open to residents who live within the following boundaries: 

North: Railroad tracks just south of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
South: Downing Street, including Dixon Avenue, Starberry Lane, and Nelson Avenue
East: Nelson Avenue
West: North Dover Road

This cleanup opportunity is funded through annual solid waste assessments paid by community property owners. Hillsborough County Code Enforcement encourages residents to take advantage of the disposal and restore their property to avoid code violations.

Yard waste, commercial vehicle tires, and hazardous chemicals will not be accepted. For more information, call (813) 274-6600.
