Temporary Suspension to Curbside Recycling Collection Service

City of St. Petersburg curbside recycling collection will be temporarily suspended starting Tuesday, March 24.

The suspension of service is due to a mechanical issue at the vendor’s recycling facility that processes curbside recycling. The suspension of service is unrelated to COVID-19.

Residents can still drop off recyclables at City Brush Sites and other recycling drop off sites across the city. Visit stpete.org/brushsites for locations and more information.

Collection service will be resumed as soon as possible. The City of St. Petersburg apologizes for the inconvenience and appreciates your patience.

Questions, call the Sanitation Department at 727-893-7398.

Shopping Resources During Social Distancing

Hello Neighbors!

We know that you may be having difficulties getting food and supplies while keeping yourselves safe and healthy. So here are a few local resources to help you obtain what you need with minimal exposure.

“Starting March 24, shoppers exclusively ages 65 or older will be able to shop at all Publix grocery stores on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7-8 a.m. The stores’ pharmacies will also open at 7 a.m. for seniors.”*

“Beginning Wednesday, March 18, Target will reserve the first hour of shopping each Wednesday at stores nationwide for vulnerable guests – including elderly and those with underlying health concerns.”*

“We know our older customers could be more vulnerable to the coronavirus and to better support them, Walmart is offering special shopping hours. From March 24 through April 28, Walmart stores will host an hour-long senior shopping event every Tuesday for customers aged 60 and older. This will start one hour before the store opens. Our Pharmacies and Vision Centers will also be open during this time.”*

“Special shopping hours for seniors from 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. Monday through Friday.”*

CHNA Book Club 1/28/20 – Little Women

The Book Nook’s January 2020 book is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott!

Little Women is recognized as one of the best-loved classid children’s stories, transcending the boundaries of time and age, making it as popular with adults as it is with young readers. The charming story of these four “little women” and their mother Marmee enduring hardships and enjoying adventures in Civil War New England was an instant success when first published in 1868 and continues to be adored for generations. The beloved story of the March girls is a classic American feminist novel, reflecting the tension between cultural obligation and artistic personal freedom. It was just re-adapted onto the big screen this Christmas 2019, directed by Greta Gerwig!

Are you a Meg? Or good like Beth? Or are you more adventurous like Amy or Jo?

Come discuss all of this and more regarding this American classic with your Crescent heights neighbors!
