2013 Pinellas County Recycling Directory now available | Environment
Pinellas County, Florida -- The new Recycle Today: 2013 Pinellas County Recycling Directory has just been released. The directory is packed with the latest information about how to recycle in Pinellas County including local options for recycling cans, bottles, paper, cardboard, yard waste, electronics, chemicals, motor oil, cooking oil and much more.
Find out what’s new in 2013 such as expanded recycling programs for plastics #1-7, glass and milk and juice cartons at the county’s drop-off centers in the unincorporated areas. In addition, these items are now being collected single-stream. Many municipal recycling programs have been improved and residents are encouraged to check for the changes in their municipality.
Free copies of the new directory are available in the local newspapers. The directory will be distributed with the inserts in the Sunday, Jan. 20, edition of the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times) and the St. Petersburg Tribune (formerly the Tampa Tribune - Pinellas County edition).
Copies will also be distributed in the Thursday, Jan. 24, edition of The Weekly Challenger newspaper. After Jan. 21, citizens can pick up a free copy at local libraries, Sweetbay stores, Nature’s Food Patch or Pinellas County drop-off recycling centers.
