Expanded Paint Disposal Options for Hillsborough Residents Starting November 1
Residents of unincorporated Hillsborough County are getting expanded opportunities for household paint disposal. Starting Nov. 1, limited quantities of household paint will be accepted at all four of the County’s Community Collection Centers, in addition to the existing select Saturday Household Hazardous Waste collections.
The Community Collection Centers are self-unloading facilities open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and are located at:
Alderman Ford, 9402 SR 39 in Lithia
Hillsborough Heights, 6209 CR 579 in Seffner
Northwest County, 8001 W. Linebaugh Ave. in Tampa
South County, 13000 US Highway 41 in Gibsonton
Residents will be able to drop off up to 10 one-gallon and 5 five-gallon paint containers per month by simply showing a photo ID. Aerosol paints and chemicals are not accepted at the centers and should continue to be disposed of at Household Hazardous Waste events.
