GOOD NEIGHBOR TIP
FIRE-SAFE TRASH DISPOSAL
A big flaming heap of trash. Don't like the sound of that? Let hot coals cool completely before putting them in the trash container and don't throw away rechargeable batteries. These can cause fires in the bin or the trash collection truck! As a famous bear definitely once said: Only you can prevent dumpster fires.
Find rechargeable battery disposal tips at stpete.org/collection
LOVE DON'T COST A THING
Well...it's actually just a few cents per month. This Valentine's month and beyond, show some love to your neighbors in need by making easy, automatic donations through your utility bill. With the Utility Bill Round-Up, we'll round up your bill to the nearest dollar and donate the difference to help St. Pete families through a network of local social service agencies. You can also sign up to make one-time or recurring donations for any amount.
