Curbside Recycling Starting mid-May

This summer, Universal Curbside Recycling comes to St. Petersburg.  In mid-May, blue, 95-gallon recycling carts will be delivered to single-and multi-family (up to four units) residences. Eligible recyclable items, rinsed and free of food particles, may be placed in the bin for twice-monthly curbside pickup. There is no need to separate. Participate, Don't Contaminate!

With Universal Curbside Recycling, there is no need to separate items. All items, as long as they are free of food particles, may be placed in the bin for bi-weekly curbside pickup.

Items that may be recycled include:

  • Glass Containers (all colors)
  • Aluminum & Steel cans, steel jar lids
  • Milk & Juice cartons, drink boxes
  • Plastics #1-7 (containers with numbered triangles)
  • Newspapers, magazines, mail, shopping ads, windowed envelopes
  • Mixed Paper/Cardboard

All recyclables must be rinsed or free of food particles (no yard waste or regular garbage).
