Special Pickup

Trash and yard waste should be placed in the designated trash bin and not loose on the curb or in the alley. For large or excess items, the Sanitation Department is here to help with Special Pickup. The City will pick up the following items for free.

For items that are not removed for free (like large quantities of accumulated waste, building materials and brush) there is a charge of $20.18 per cubic yard.

How it Works

  1. Call 727-893-7398 or submit in SeeClickFix to request a Special Pickup prior to placing any items out.
  2. For items that are picked up for free, the Sanitation Department will schedule items to be picked up. For items that are not picked up for free, the Sanitation Department will come out to assess the items and provide an estimate based on the quantity.

  3. You confirm the pickup fee, if any.

  4. The Sanitation Department picks up your items.

Brush & Yard Waste

Brush and other yard waste can also be taken to one of the City's five Brush Sites located throughout the city at no charge. Residents will need to bring a photo ID and utility bill during drop-off as proof of residency. Find locations and more information at stpete.org/BrushSites.
