The City of St. Pete Beach is under contract with Progressive Waste Solutions to provide trash collection service (collection of solid waste). Progressive Waste Solutions will directly bill property owners quarterly for services (garbage, yard/horticultural waste and recycling collections for all residential and commercial properties within the City of St. Pete Beach).

Residential garbage is collected twice a week and yard/horticultural waste is collected a minimum of once a week. All garbage must be containerized or bagged (cans and bags cannot weigh more than 40 pounds each). Yard/horticultural waste should be cut and placed at the curb by the residence homeowner. Yard waste includes all yard clippings, leaves, shrubs, palm fronds, tree limbs and such other small rubbish as ordinarily accumulates about growing vegetation. Vegetation has to be neatly piled (not in plastic bags) and not over 4 feet in length and no single item weighing more than 40 lbs. Price for up to two (2) cubic yards per yard waste collection shall be included in residential rate (Progressive Waste Solutions will charge the residence homeowner $15.00 for each additional cubic yard over two (2) cubic yards). When the driver comes to a house that has a pile larger than two (2) yards, they will pick up two yards and leave the rest. The driver will note the address on a route sheet and at the end of the day this information is relayed to Progressive Waste Solutions customer service to generate a work order for it to be picked up on the following Wednesday. The contractor will call the customer and inform them of the charge of $15.00 per yard for the extra yard waste. Resident homeowners may call Progressive Waste Solutions (Phone 727-572-6800) or another authorized company or commercial tree trimmer to provide for special collection and disposal of additional yard waste. Yard waste must be placed at the curb by 7 am and shall only be collected at the curb.
