Tim Shorter of St. Petersburg's sanitation department arranges discarded Christmas trees Wednesday at the Recycling & Brush Site, 1000 62nd Ave. NE, where they will be recycled into mulch. St. Petersburg residents can place their trees at the curb by Friday for pickup on Saturday or take them to one of five city brush sites. Many city governments in Pinellas County offer options to recycle your real tree, either through curbside pickup or dropoff at central sites. Others will carry away your tree, but don't recycle. Residents of unincorporated Pinellas can drop off up to five trees for $3 at the Solid Waste Department, 3095 114th Ave. N in St. Petersburg. For Clearwater residents, trees are picked up curbside on the regular yard waste day.
