Residents encouraged to recycle holiday trees into mulch
Contact: Sanitation Department, Christmas tree pick-up, 727-893-7398
Free Collection Set for January 14
St. Petersburg residents are encouraged to extend the life of their Christmas trees this holiday season by recycling them into useful mulch. Residents may either drop off Christmas trees at one of the city’s five brush sites (see details below) or let city Sanitation crews collect them on Saturday, January 14, 2017. Both options are free.
To prepare Christmas trees for recycling, residents should remove all decorations, including hooks, garland, tinsel, lights and tree stands from the tree prior to collection. Plastic tree disposal bags should also be removed. Residents should place trees at the curb or in the alley, depending on their trash collection location, leaving at least three feet between the tree and the trash container. Trees should be set out no earlier than Friday, January 13. It’s recommended that trees be left loose for pickup and not placed inside either trash or recycling containers. If your tree has not been picked up by end of the day on January 14, call 727-893-7398, and select option 4.
Residents of apartments and condos should check with their property managers on how to dispose of Christmas trees.
For those wishing to drop off their trees, St. Petersburg offers free Christmas tree recycling at any of the five city brush sites:
- 4015 Dr. M.L. King Jr. Street South
- Brush sites are open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday; and 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Brush sites are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. For more information, visit www.stpete.org/brushsites.
