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 We are consolidating two outdated buildings into one high-efficiency center to better serve our customers.
We are now partnering with All Florida Safety Institute, a state contracted third party administrator authorized by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV). This option may be suitable for students who need practice, need a same day appointment, or a Saturday appointment. Please note, licensees will return to the Tax Collector’s office to process their license upon satisfactory completion of their exam.
All Florida Safety Institute is an additional option and provides the following:
- Business hours and after-hours testing, including Saturdays
- Same day testing appointments
- Drivers License tests, written and road skills (fees apply)
- Practice tests (fees apply)
- A vehicle for testing (fees apply)
- Testing results uploaded immediately upon completion to the FLHSMV
*Fees charged by AFSI are separate from the cost of the driver license.
