Bring Us Your Old Cell Phones!
Since 2006 the Alachua County Tax Collectors Office has been an official Cell Phones For Soldiers Drop-Off Location. Mobile devices and tablets donated to CPFS are quickly wiped of all personal information, sold to recyclers who strip the devices of any salvageable components and/or rare metals and then responsibly recycle the remaining parts. The proceeds from this process are used to purchase prepaid international calling cards for troops and to provide emergency funding to veterans. Approximately 2,500 callings cards are mailed to the troops each week. Drop off boxes are available at all Alachua County Tax Collector locations.
Effective Monday, January 31st, 2022, our new office at 5830 NW 34th Blvd will be open. It’s located just across the street from our current location. We are consolidating two outdated buildings into one high-efficiency center to better serve our customers.
For the sixth consecutive year, our office has earned the Legacy Award for Continued Excellence in Financial Operations. “Receiving the Legacy Award six years in a row is truly an honor and a testament to our dedicated staff”, states Tax Collector, John Power. “They work tirelessly to not only ensure accurate financial records, but to explore and implement new ways to automate processes and increase efficiency; all while saving taxpayer dollars and ensuring timely and accurate disbursements. I am extremely proud of them, they are deserving of this great award.”
