Glass containers (all colors); aluminum and steel cans; steel jar lids; milk and juice cartons; drink boxes; plastic containers with numbered triangles #1-7; newspapers, magazines, mail, shopping ads, windowed envelopes; mixed paper and cardboard; yard clippings; appliances/mixed metals. 

Unacceptable Materials 

St. Petersburg brush sites do not accept plastic trash or grocery bags, plastic dry cleaning or newspaper bags, plastic wrappers from water bottle, toilet paper, or paper towel packaging, flimsy plastic packaging, or Styrofoam. These items should be thrown away in the trash.

In addition, the Pinellas County recycling site offers other convenient St. Petersburg public recycling centers (collecting some, but not all, recyclables) to make recycling even easier. Operating hours vary.

Property owners who hire a business to do yard work

If the property owner cannot accompany the workers to a brush site for disposal, they may use the Brush Site Consent Form . The form must be signed and completed by both the property owner and the company performing the services in order for the brush site to accept the material.
