Spring Hill is Turning Trash to Treasure for Hurricane Relief in Florida


SPRING HILL, TN - Oct. 7, 2022  A unique opportunity has surfaced for the citizens of Spring Hill to aid in disaster relief for Florida in the aftermath of last week’s Hurricane Ian.

The City is currently undergoing preparations to implement new to side-arm garbage truck service. Nearly 18,000 new waste containers have been delivered to residents who will no longer need the old containers. The plan has been to place old containers at the curb on regularly scheduled brush pick-up days for Public Works to pick them up to be disposed of. That is about to change.

With the help of Waste Management, along with HOAs and property managers, plans are underway to gather the old waste containers in a central location where they can be picked up by the City and shipped to the affected area in Florida where they will be used during the disaster response. 

Beginning at 7 am tomorrow, Saturday, October 8th and going through 12 noon on Wednesday, October 12, residents are asked to deliver their empty and cleaned out containers to the amenity center in their subdivision.

If a resident does not have access to an amenity center, please drop off at one of the following locations: 

• Fischer Park, 4285 Port Royal Rd, Spring Hill, TN

• Spring Hill Library, 144 Kedron Pkwy, Spring Hill, TN

• Behind the Shell station, Buckner Road & Rt 31, Spring Hill, TN

• Public Works Building, 3893 Mahlon Moore Rd, Spring Hill, TN

We appreciate your assistance as we seek to aid our Florida friends impacted by this terrible event.
