Single-Stream Recycling

APRIL 3, 2020 ALERTRecycling in Belleair Suspended Until Further Notice Due to External Issue

The Town of Belleair partners with the City of Clearwater and utilizes Clearwater’s recycling processing center for the disposal of recyclable materials. The City of Clearwater’s recycling processing center recently experienced a failure in the tipping floor. This failure has exposed rebar in the floor, which has created a condition that could cause damage to machinery and is unsafe for Clearwater city staff.

As a result, Belleair’s Solid Waste Department will be suspending recycling collection until repairs can be completed. We apologize for any inconvenience but must act in the best interests of the safety of our and Clearwater’s solid waste staff. Trash collection will continue on its normal schedule.

Feel free to contact the John J. Osborne Public Works Building at (727) 588-3795 with any questions.

Our Recycling Barrels

The town provides 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 remains the property of the Town.
