Commercial Sanitation Services

The City of Temple Terrace provides commercial refuse collection to all business locations in Temple Terrace. There are three commercial options to choose from depending on the size and type of business being serviced: commercial cans, compactors (emptying only), and dumpsters.

Option 1

Small businesses that do not generate enough waste to require a dumpster should call Public Works for disposal options. 

Option 2

Many larger businesses and multi-family establishments use a compactor. The compactor must be kept in a city approved enclosure and will not be provided by the city. The city empties compactors either on a schedule or by request. The charges for emptying and returning the container are below.

Option 3

Commercial properties may also elect to use a dumpster container. The city provides the dumpster(s) and empties them either on a schedule or by request. The dumpster must be kept in a city approved enclosure. See below for size / service options and monthly charges.
