Universal Curbside Recycling in St. Petersburg
This summer, the city of St. Petersburg begins a Universal Curbside Recycling program for residential customers. In mid-May, single-family households will see a blue 95-gallon recycling bin delivered to their home.
With Universal Curbside Recycling, there is no need to separate items. All items, as long as they are free of food particles, may be placed in the bin for bi-weekly curbside pickup.
Items that may be recycled include:
- Glass Containers (all colors)
- Aluminum & Steel cans, steel jar lids
- Milk & Juice cartons, drink boxes
- Plastics #1-7 (containers with numbered triangles)
- Newspapers, magazines, mail, shopping ads, windowed envelopes
- Mixed Paper/Cardboard
All recyclables must be rinsed or free of food particles (no yard waste or regular garbage).
Participate, Don’t Contaminate!
