Hillsborough County is a participating community in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Furthermore, since October of 1992, the County has taken advantage of the opportunity to participate in the NFIP’s Community Rating System, or CRS. The CRS program incentivizes communities to go above and beyond minimum standards to implement best practices that better protect the community from flooding.
Please read the linked information from Hillsborough County so you can prepare for the upcoming season and get flood insurance before it is too

Help Keep Trash Out of the Recycling Bin

Hillsborough County Solid Waste Management is seeking your help to share information with your neighborhood about the importance of recycling correctly. Unfortunately, too many incorrect items and bagged recyclables are being placed in recycling carts, which can endanger staff, cause equipment damage, and lead to less materials ultimately being recycled successfully. Accepted recyclable items need to be clean, empty, dry, and loose in the recycling cart (not bagged) to be successfully recovered. Since Hillsborough County's residential recycling rules may be different than where you have lived in the past and where you work, please take the time to research and follow local program rules. Here are few quick guidelines to remember when recycling curbside in Hillsborough County:

Do Not Recycle Curbside:

• NO plastic bags, bagged recyclables, or film
• NO food, liquids, or dirty materials
• NO batteries, chemicals, electronics, or oil
• NO yard waste or garbage
• NO clothing, furniture, or carpet
• NO foam cups or containers

Sharing this information and Hillsborough County's newly updated Recycling Guide (English & Español) with your members, neighbors, friends, and family will help our community meet targeted recycling goals, save resources, create jobs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. If you would like to learn more about recycling and Hillsborough County's solid waste services, you can request a free presentation for your organization by contacting the Sustainable Materials Management Team at or call (813) 272-5680, or visit to learn more about what the County has to offer.
