GET INVOLVED
Storm-Related Yard Waste Collection

Pile all storm-related vegetative yard debris curbside in preparation for collection. This is for vegetation only (bushes, tree branches, palm fronds, etc). There is no need to call and report a special pickup. Please leave debris curbside until it can be collected. Note that this may not line up with your regularly scheduled collection day.


Post-storm collection began on October 3rd and it is expected to take up to 60 days to remove the debris created by Hurricane Ian. This is typical for a storm of this magnitude in a city the size of Tampa; we thank you for your patience during this time. We’ve collected an estimated 8,000 cubic yards so far – follow the progress using the Debris Cleanup Map
