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.
