Pinellas Park Offers Free Permits for Home Improvements
The free permits are part of the city’s annual Pride in the Park program.
PINELLAS PARK – This city is kicking off its annual Pride in the Park spring cleanup program by offering free permits and a free trash drop-off.
The permits, for certain repair and construction work on residential property, are available through March 23 from the Pinellas Park Building Department, 6051 78th Ave. N.
“This is a great opportunity for Pinellas Park residents to obtain a free permit for home improvement projects such as roofing, alterations, minor repairs, fencing, deck work, barns, sheds, trees, patios and concrete driveways,” said Steve Lee, Building Development director. “This kicks off our city’s Pride in the Park which is a spring cleanup program scheduled for Saturday, March 10th.”
Once known as Sparkle Day, the event allows residents to demonstrate pride in their community by improving the appearance of their property. Residents may dispose of household trash and yard waste at one of eight drop-off sites located throughout the city.
Drop-off sites will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The drop-off sites will accept only household trash and yard waste debris for disposal. Each drop-off site will have large open-top containers, one for household trash such as paper, cardboard, wood, bedding etc.) and one for yard waste debris. These drop-off sites will not accept food waste. Please separate your yard waste from your household trash and deposit the material into the appropriate containers. The yard waste will be recycled into mulch.
Free, recycled mulch is available at the city’s brush site, 12950 40th St. Please bring your own shovel and container and take as much mulch as you like. The site is open 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Sunday.
Please do not bring items such as food waste, automotive engine blocks, tires (tires without rims only, accepted at the northwest corner of 78th Avenue and 60th Street N and the Home Depot parking lot), automotive and marine batteries, used motor oil, antifreeze, or hazardous wastes to the drop-off locations for disposal. Household bulk items such as dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, water heaters, and ranges may be placed at the curb for collection on your regular trash collection days.
Refrigerators must have the doors removed or padlocked.
