St. Pete Offers Free Christmas Tree Disposal
By JON WILSON, Consulting Editor, TB Reporter
City crews will pick up trees curbside, or you can take them to several brush dump sites.
ST. PETERSBURG — St. Pete residents can get rid of their Christmas trees by leaving them curbside on Jan. 9 for sanitation crews. They can also dispose of the trees at one of the several brush dumps mentioned below. Both options are free.
To prepare trees for recycling, residents should remove all decorations, including hooks, garland, tinsel, lights and tree stands. Plastic tree disposal bags should also be removed. Trees should be placed 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 Jan. 8. It’s recommended that they be left loose for pickup and not placed inside either trash or recycling containers. Residents whose trees have not been picked by day’s end on Jan. 9 should call (727) 893-7398, then select option 4 from the prompts.
Apartment and condo residents should check with their property managers on how to dispose of trees. Residents who want to drop off trees may do so at one of these brush sites:
- 100062nd Ave. NE
- 7750 26th Ave. N
- 2500 26th Ave. S
- 4015 Dr. M.L. King Jr. St. S
- 2453 20th Ave. N
Brush sites are open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Sites are closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. For more information, visit www.stpete.org/brushsites .
