TEMPORARY SERVICE CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19
To protect the public and staff, the Department of Solid Waste has implemented temporary service changes. Until further notice, these procedures will be in place:
Household Electronics and Chemical Collection Center (HEC3):
Pinellas County Solid Waste operates the Household Electronics and Chemical Collection Center (HEC3) as a disposal location for certain household waste. Pinellas County residents are invited to bring their unwanted electronics and chemicals to the center (at no charge). Businesses, visit here for information.
To find out how to get rid of other electronics, chemicals, and special wastes, review the A to Z Guide for Recycling and Disposal in Pinellas County.
Quantity Limits per vehicle:
The Swap Shop, located at HEC3, offers used household products such as paint, cleaners, and automotive fluids FREE of charge to Pinellas County residents. One resident painted her entire house with paint she found at the Swap Shop! Despite the name, there is no need to swap. However, because items are free, availability can change by the minute! Quantities may be limited. Electronics are not included in the Swap Shop Program.
