Clearwater Recycling Drop-Off Temporarily Closes
A railroad construction project prompts the closure.
CLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater’s Solid Waste/Recycling Department is temporarily closing the recycling drop-off center, which also includes facilities to recycle greases, now through June.
The closure is because of a railway maintenance project along Hercules Avenue that is under way between Sunset Point Road and Drew Street. Pinellas County and CSX Transportation are implementing the construction.
During the closure, residents are encouraged to continue to use single-stream recycling services provided at their residences or businesses. Hazardous waste and electronics can be taken to Pinellas County’s Household Electronics and Chemical Collection Center, or HEC3 facility at 2855 109th Ave. N, St. Petersburg. For information about the HEC3 facility, call (727) 464-7500.
That means that the city of Clearwater’s May 31 e-waste collection event will be canceled as well. The next collection will resume June 28. Electronics accepted include televisions, cell phones, computer towers/CPUs, drives (such as hard drives and CD drives), laptops, desktop monitors, smart phones and tablets. The city will not accept any electronics that have been scavenged.
Residents with questions can call the Clearwater Solid Waste/Recycling department at (727) 562‐4933.
