Project Overview and Scope
Photos and video provided by Hillsborough County
The Solid Waste Section serves to update the Solid Waste Element of the Unincorporated Hillsborough County Comprehensive Plan. The update is designed to provide a long-term framework for the County to be a leader in sustainable solid waste management. Incorporating the integrated hierarchy of waste management, the updated language proposes additional policy related to waste reduction, reuse, and recycling, leveraging waste as a resource, sustainable and resilient siting practices, and strategies for the County to lead by example.
The language was developed via a collaborative approach with staff from Hillsborough County’s Solid Waste Management Division. It is coordinated with other sustainability planning efforts by the County and incorporates best practices in sustainable solid waste management planning.
