Curbside Recycling Rolls into St. Pete This Summer

Informational Meetings Scheduled


Beginning this July, St. Petersburg residents who live in single-family and multi-family residences up to four units may begin saving the environment with the launch of bi-weekly Universal Curbside Recycling collection. The new single-stream recycling initiative, administered by the city Sanitation Department, will be in addition to the department's regular weekly residential and commercial solid waste collections.

For more info stpete.org/recycle/

The Universal Curbside Recycling program is scheduled to get underway with the delivery of blue, 95-gallon carts to approximately 76,000 residents this May. Once the program officially begins collections in July, residents will be able to place eligible recyclable items that are rinsed or free of food particles in the cart before wheeling it to the curb for pickup on their designated recycling day. To pay for the service, residents will see $2.95 added to their monthly utility bill.

Items that are eligible for recycling under the new program include newspapers, magazines, mixed paper, and cardboard, along with clear and colored glass, aluminum and steel cans, steel jar lids, milk and juice cartons, and #1-7 plastic containers that have been rinsed or are free of food particles. Items that will not be accepted for recycling include plastic bags, pizza boxes, used paper plates, styrofoam or take-out containers, light bulbs, mirrors, ceramics, electronics, paint, pesticides, and batteries.

A series of meetings to introduce the new Universal Curbside Recycling program to the public and provide an opportunity for education will be held in each of St. Petersburg's eight council districts beginning March 23.

The eight public meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the following locations:

Downtown Waterfront Master Plan – Project Update January 2015

To date, the City’s Downtown Waterfront Master Plan (DWMP) team has conducted more than 45 meetings and events with about 600 participants. In Phase I, the DWMP team listened to community input, held stakeholder meetings with sustainability and climate change experts, a social equity and diversity group, the business community, and port, marina, and airport leaders, and others.

In Phase II, five themes were presented and validated by the community. Under those themes, many starter ideas for the downtown waterfront were presented. Some ideas were to address baseline needs, such as parkland and vista preservation, and others were more transformative, such as creating a Bayboro Collaboration Zone including the Port, Airport, USFSP, and other institutions. The City’s Downtown Waterfront Master Plan (DWMP) project is now entering Phase III of four Phases.

A 4-day workshop for testing and refining ideas for the DWMP will be held January 26 – 29. The DWMP team needs your continued feedback and collaboration. Please plan to attend all three public events:

Monday, January 26 at 6:30 pm
The DWMP team will give a presentation and work with participants on refining master plan elements;

Wednesday, January 28 from 4-7 pm
An open house will be held where the public may view work in progress and talk to the team in an informal setting; and

Thursday, January 29 at 6:30 pm
Presentation of programmatic design and implementation approaches that will help form the draft master plan document (Phase IV).

All events are being held at the USFSP Harbor Hall (former Dali Museum) 1000 3rd Street South. Shortcut to latest November 13, 2014 presentation with “starter ideas”: Master Plan .pdf

Please forward information to your neighbors and business contacts, encourage them to sign up on line for updates and attend events. 



Edgemoor November Notes

November 18 meeting will have guest speaker on downtown Pier plans


First off, the annual Clean Up on October 18th & 19th was a huge success! Last year our total collection was 9+ tons, this years total was 11+ tons. It is rumored that our neighborhood set the record for all the neighborhoods in the city for the most tonnage collected in one weekend! In light of that success, the City has given us the option of doing the Clean Up twice per year - April and October.

Feel free to add your input on the Clean Up event or any other neighborhood project you would like to see Edgemoor undertake, you can use our Contact Us form or send your thoughts and comments directly to our president, Richard Kirby (see link below).

We will have a special guest speaker at the November 18th meeting from the Ah Ha Design Group, one of the 8 finalists selected to design our new downtown pier. They are seeking the communities input as to what the folks in St. Pete would like to see incorporated in the design of the new Pier. We look forward to hearing their ideas as well.
