How to get rid of unwanted garbage cans in Hillsborough

If you live in Hillsborough County and want to get rid of your old garbage can, make sure you take it to the curb.

The county will begin using their new garbage and recycling carts next Monday.

If you can, leave them out all this week with a note to your service provider.

You can also place them in the new gray roll-cart once the automated collection starts, or you can bring the unwanted cans to one of Hillsborough's community collection centers.
