Solid Waste Enhanced Environmental Program (S.W.E.E.P.)

The City of Tampa Department of Solid Waste & Environmental Program Management’s S.W.E.E.P. services team collects approximately 2,893 tons of miscellaneous debris annually. In order to maintain the effectiveness of this program, the layout of the S.W.E.E.P. schedule has been updated. This program is reserved for residential customers with active solid waste accounts residing in single-family homes and multi-unit properties (four units and less).

The next scheduled pickup week is May 6-10, 2024 for our Bayshore Beautiful S.W.E.E.P. collection. Please place all debris curbside no later than 8:00 p.m. on the Sunday of your S.W.E.E.P. clean up week.

SWEEP Set Out Requirements:
  • Items must be placed curbside, on the right of way in front of your residence, no later than Sunday night at 8 p.m. the week of your S.W.E.E.P. collection.

  • Please do not approach the truck at any time, especially when employee is operating the truck.

  • For safety reasons, S.W.E.E.P. items blocked by vehicles or other items will not be collected.

  • S.W.E.E.P. crews will not return later in the week to areas that have already been cleared.

  • The earliest that items may be placed curbside is five days prior to the first day of your S.W.E.E.P. collection.

  • To avoid additional disposal costs for excessively large debris, S.W.E.E.P. piles should not exceed 10 cubic yards.

  • To prevent injury and damage to equipment, property, and personnel please avoid placing items under low hanging tree limbs, on or near electrical/phone lines, water meters and utility boxes.

  • Flat glass items, such as mirrors, window glass, table top panes, must be duct taped or wrapped to prevent it from breaking.

  • Items placed in front of vacant homes or lots will be treated as illegal dumping and will be investigated by Code Enforcement for resolution.

For a full list of items are accepted, or not, and for more information on the program, please visit the City's website.

Police Patrols

In the early months of 2023, South Tampa experienced a rash of car break-ins and package thefts. At the time, the BBNA Board unanimously voted to increase our police patrols to three times per month back.  Each patrol is $43/hour, and each shift is three hours. The off-duty officer has been coming between the hours of 10 PM - 3 AM based on availability. 


We were fortunate enough to be able to fund these patrols with our current police patrol donations through March, but we depend on your continued generosity to keep the fund going as the membership fees do not cover this extra service for our neighborhood. 


Please consider donating to the patrol fund today by clicking the link. Our neighbors will thank you!

More information coming soon!

Neighborhood Watch Leader Wanted!

At the BBNA town hall, we included the option to vote yes/no on the ballot to join the neighborhood watch program. It was unanimous, and we are now looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer(s) to lead it. Below is a list of criteria outlined by the Tampa Police Department.


You will need:

  • A person or group of people committed to starting a Neighborhood Watch.

  • A planning committee to initiate the program.

  • A list of what issues initially need to be addressed in your community.

  • A means of communicating with the residents, e.g. e-mail, social media, phone trees, flyers, etc.

  • Publicity for the initial Neighborhood Watch meeting.

  • A meeting agenda to keep things moving and on track.

  • A place to meet—community center, school, library or any public meeting place.

  • A Community Partnership Liaison to discuss the crime issues and help train members of the community.


This will be a neighborhood effort, but we are looking for one neighbor to take the lead on this program. This position will require strong leadership skills to get this off the ground. Please give this some thoughtful consideration if you think this position is for you. More information about the program can be found here. Reach out to us with your interest at
