Curbside Recycling Begins June 29
Curbside Recycling will begin Monday, June 29, in St. Petersburg for single-family and multi-unit residences (up to 4 units). Collections will be made zone-by-zone, beginning with Zone 1. See the chart below for the start date in each zone. Customers may find their zone by locating the colored sticker on their recycling container, in the welcome kit provided with each container, or with the new St. Pete Collects mobile app.
Curbside Recycling customers who missed collection on their designated recycling day may contact 893-7838 to re-schedule recycling pickup. Calls received at the Sanitation Department before 4 p.m. will have recycling collected the same day; calls received after 4 p.m. will be collected on the following schedule:
Zone 1 & 3 – Wednesday, July 1
Zone 5 & 7 – Saturday, July 4
- Online Welcome Kits
(A1-Grey | B2-Yellow | A3-Red | B4-Green | A5-Purple | B6-Orange | A7-Pink | B8-Blue)
Since May 4, 76,000 blue, 95-gallon recycling carts were automatically delivered to these residential addresses. Until curbside recycling collection begins in each zone, customers are encouraged to move containers away from the curb to the side or back of the residence until their designated recycling day.
