As with all of Hillsborough County homeowners, Providence Lakes would like to remind its residents that the recently distributed new trash cans can be swapped for a smaller size if desired. Residents who would like to exchange their roll carts for a smaller size can contact waste management through Saturday, March 15 at 621-3053. Any downsizes in cans after that period will be charged a $30 fee, so if residents are finding it difficult to fill the larger-sized cans, now is the time to swap for a smaller size.

Recycling no longer needs to be sorted; everything can be thrown into the same bin. Cans only need to be placed at the curb the night before trash day; at least three feet apart from each other and from mailboxes, cars, plants, fire hydrants and poles.  For more information, visit

The PLMA holds board meetings once a month which are open to Providence Lakes homeowners. The current president of the PLMA is Bob Berry.
