Curbside recycling is finally kicking off in St. Pete this summer. Leading up to the July launch of the long-anticipated program, St. Pete City Council members got an update on plans for a seamless rollout during a meeting Thursday.
The city will start delivering bins to homes as soon as May, but don’t get too excited. Filling those bins up with recycling before July will mean a smelly can waiting through several hot summer months before being picked up.
Because delivering some 80,000 bins is a hefty task, the city will have to get started before the program also begins.
