St. Pete will begin residential debris cleanup following Hurricane Ian on Monday, October 3. Only green vegetation will be collected. Residents are asked to sort out any normal garbage or other construction materials from the green vegetation.
Vegetation can be left on the edge of your property line, but do not block meters or stack vegetation against other items like trees or garbage cans. The city will collect debris from all houses; and will follow normal sanitation routes. NOTE: There is no need to call and report the need for a special sanitation pickup.
Debris may not be picked up on your first scheduled trash pickup date – expect the process to take time as city crews work the entire city grid. In addition to pickup by the city, residents can take debris to one of the city’s five brush sites, which will offer extended hours of 9AM to 7PM beginning Friday, 9/30, until Sunday, Oct. 8.
Local Brush Sites:
- 1000 62nd Ave. NE.
- 7750 26th Ave. N.
- 2500 26th Ave. S.
- 4015 Dr. Martin Luther King St. S.
- 2453 20th Ave. N.
Residents may drop off yard waste (grass, leaves, tree and shrub trimmings, palm fronds, limbs and logs), with the following exceptions:
- Yard waste must not contain plastics, metal or lumber
- Large limbs/logs should be less than five feet long
- Stumps should weigh less than 300 lbs
