Single-Stream Recycling
Don't be blue, Belleair is going green!
On Thursday, February 6th, residents begin a new single stream recycling program with more recycling options and a new green barrel for easier curbside collection. Belleair’s new service will allow you to recycle more and is cleaner, greener, and safer. The improved recycling service will make it easier than ever for you to make a commitment to become an avid recycler.

New green barrels
The town will provide each resident, at no additional charge, a new 64 or 48 gallon, green, recycling barrel with a lid to keep material dry and help control litter. This barrel will remain the property of the town. The new green barrel replaces the 18 gallon blue bins. Due to the new automated collection process, the old bins cannot be used after February 6th. The new barrel is easy to use and navigate. The increased capacity in the green barrel will accommodate the wider variety of materials now accepted and will allow you to recycle more than ever before. Recyclables will still be collected only once a week and the entire town will be collected on Thursdays.
