Commercial Dumpster Collection Guidelines

Businesses and organizations supplied with dumpsters should follow these guidelines:
•Dumpsters that are visible at ground level from any public right-of-way or adjacent property must be concealed in a gated enclosure with a reinforced concrete pad. Enclosures must be constructed so the dumpster is accessible to users and refuse collection trucks, and must conform to city specifications. For assistance or questions, call 727-724-1550 ext 2002
•Do not block dumpster enclosures with vehicles or other obstructions.
•Do not overload containers or place objects on top of closed lids.
•Cut pipes or boards into short lengths so they will not stick out of or become wedged in the container.
•Do not place the following materials in the container: concrete, dirt, sod, sand, plaster or other heavy building materials, electronics, paint, tar, hot ashes, flammable/hazardous/biomedical waste, auto batteries or tires.
•Drain and wrap wet garbage prior to placing in the container.
