WHO DOESN'T LIKE FIREWORKS?

Join us for St. Pete Pier’s The Fourth for patriotic festivities and yes, fireworks! Details to come at stpetepier.org.

For the early birds, the 2024 Pier Run is happening in the morning on July 4th at the St. Pete Pier. Find details and registration at stpeterunfest.org/st-pete-pier-run.

KEEP THE SUNSHINE CITY BRIGHT

Help the Sunshine City by not using fertilizer this summer! Every year, increased rainfall in the summer months can cause nutrients from fertilizer to reach bodies of water and lead to environmental issues and water quality problems. We can help our environment through this season in many ways, including partaking in the fertilizer ban from June 1 to September 30.

More information at stpete.org/Fertilizer.

CAN’T PUT A PRICE ON BEING PREPARED

Hurricane season is officially here! Do you know your evacuation zone? Have supplies? Do you live in a low-lying area and need tips for flooding?

Be ready before the storm by visiting stpete.org/Hurricane.

KNOW YOUR DAY, ST PETE!

Did you know that we're in a drought? Sadly, there's been below-normal rainfall and water restrictions have been adjusted to help conserve water.

Check stpete.org/WaterRestrictions for your watering schedule and more information. Watering schedules vary based on your location in Pinellas County.

SERVIN' UP SUCCESS

Learn the keys to community success at Midtown Academy on July 27th as St. Pete hosts Servant Leader’s Day! It's a community extravaganza where businesses and civil servants share their resources with St. Pete residents, proving that together, we've got it all covered. Join the fun, discover new opportunities with community leaders, and let's show how teamwork makes the dream work in our city!

QUESTIONS ABOUT RECYLCING? CONSULT THE WASTE WIZARD!

Figuring out what should be recycled and what is trash doesn't need to feel like an epic quest. The Waste Wizard is a nifty tool to guide you on your recycling journey. Simply type the name of a waste material and the Wizard will tell you which bin it goes in.

Find the Waste Wizard, as well as collection schedules, holiday adjustments, large item pickup info, and more, in the St. Pete Collects app or at stpete.org/Collect.
