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

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

From Friday, March 3, to Friday, March 10, 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.
