The residential community clean-up target area was Gall Blvd to 12th Street; and, 12th Avenue to 5th Avenue, in Zephyrhills.

Approximately 15 Zephyrhills Public Works employees were on hand to assist with check-ins, roving clean-up in alleyways of target areas, and facilitate the drop-off site at Zephyrhills City Hall, 5335 8th Street.

Numerous items were disposed of throughout the four-hour morning shift, including tires, electronics, appliances, yard debris, mattresses and more.

The City used a series of pay loaders and 30-yard roll-off dumpsters to collect unwanted items.

Collection totals from the April 9 City of Zephyrhills Neighborhood Clean-Up

  • 150 cubic yards of mixed-debris collection
  • Four appliances
  • Seven TVs/electronics
  • 35 tires
  • 17 drive-up drop offs

April 9 event disposal cost: $1,547.75

Cumulative totals from City of Zephyrhills Neighborhood Clean-Ups (dating back to 2015)

  • 1,618 cubic yards of mixed-debris collection
  • 49 appliances
  • 217 TVs/electronics
  • 858 tires
  • 263 drive-up drop offs

Total all-time disposal cost: $16,543.38

The general idea of the City’s clean-up program is to help alleviate various Code Enforcement issues in certain areas, and the municipality at-large.

This amnesty clean-up program is an investment the City makes in beautifying the community, as Zephyrhills Public Works funds all tipping fees from the event.

The City’s Neighborhood Clean-Up program was established in 2015, in collaboration with the City’s Public Works, Code Enforcement and Community Redevelopment Agency; the City looks to organize these events three times a year.

Zephyrhills Public Works Director Shane LeBlanc says, “We get a lot of variety. We get old televisions, appliances, tires, construction debris, tree limbs — basically debris that people can’t get rid of on their own. It’s a good opportunity for the residents to get rid of their unwanted items.”
