As of Oct. 1, the Solid Waste Management Department will be closing its Wimauma Community Collection Center facility. The facility is being closed because of low usage, and the department will save resources by closing the facility.

After this date, residents will still be able to take their solid waste that they can not leave at their curbside to the County's four other Community Collection Centers. This includes items such as furniture, appliances, metal and normal household construction debris.

The Community Collection Centers are located at:
-- South County Community Collection Center, 13000 U.S. Hwy 41 South, just north of Big Bend Road
-- Alderman Ford Community Collection Center, 9402 S.R. 39 in Lithia
-- Hillsborough Heights Community Collection Center, 6209 C.R. 579 in Mango
-- Northwest County Community Collection Center, 8001 W. Linebaugh Ave. in Citrus Park

Items also can be taken to the Southeast County Landfill at 15960 C.R. 672 in the Balm area.

All Community Collection Centers are open Monday - Saturday, 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Residents can use the Community Collection Centers and the Southeast County Landfill, free of charge up to certain limits, by presenting the on-site attendant their current property tax bill showing their solid waste collection and disposal assessments.
