Collection: Garbage & Recycling

Garbage and recycling collection services are managed independently by municipalities (incorporated areas) and County-licensed private haulers (unincorporated areas). Pinellas County does not offer garbage or recycling collection service except in the east Lealman community.

Collection depends on where you live or where your business is located. 

Use Pinellas County’s My Neighborhood Services tool to find out if your home or business is located within a municipality or an unincorporated area.

Municipality (City or Town)

Residents, multifamily developments, and businesses located in cities or towns should contact their municipality for garbage and recycling collection service options.

Unincorporated Pinellas County

Residents, businesses and multi-family developments located in unincorporated areas should contact one or more of the garbage and recycling collection service providers that are licensed by Pinellas County (see list below). Note: Pinellas County is not affiliated with County Sanitation and does not recommend one provider over the other.
