St. Petersburg, FL (Sept. 29, 2022) - City of St. Petersburg Announces Debris Pickup Citywide

Beginning Monday, Oct. 3, the City of St. Petersburg will start collecting debris from residential homes. A couple of important details:

  • Only green vegetation will be collected. Residents are asked to sort out any normal garbage or other construction materials from the green vegetation.

  • Vegetation can be left on the edge of your property line, but do not block meters or stack vegetation against other items like trees or garbage cans.

  • The City will collect debris from all houses; and will follow normal sanitation routes.

  • There is no need to call and report the need for a special sanitation pickup.

  • Debris may not be picked up on your first scheduled trash pickup date - expect the process to take time as City crews work the entire city grid.

In addition to pickup by the city, residents can take debris to one of the City’s five brush sites, which will offer extended hours of 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. beginning Friday, 9/30, until Sunday, Oct. 9. Brush site locations be found at
