TEMPORARY SERVICE CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19
To protect the public and staff, the Department of Solid Waste has implemented temporary service changes.
Mobile electronic and chemical collection events will follow social distancing guidelines. Residents are asked to remain in their vehicles and place electronics and chemicals in the vehicle trunk or back of pickup truck/ trailer. Staff will not remove items from vehicle interiors.
Mobile Collection Events and the Haz-to-Go Truck are convenient ways to safely dispose and recycle chemicals and electronics, such as old computers, TVs, paint, fluorescent bulbs, and fertilizer. These events and collection sites are FREE to Pinellas County residents. Staff will remove items from your vehicle. Information For Businesses
