Residential recycling pickup will resume Thursday, December 1

Offices for the City of St. Augustine will be closed on Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.  Residential recycling collection will be suspended until Thursday, December 1 to allow for solid waste workers to be given the holiday off from work. Please note that limited solid waste services will still be completed, such as litter pick up and commercial solid waste/recycling collections.

In the interim, residents may divert recyclables by using our free drop off recycling locations (listed below):

  • 601 Riberia Street - end of Riberia by Solid Waste Department and Waste Water Plant.
  • North City – by the Las Palmas condos on San Marco.
  • Red Cox Drive - by the Soccer Field, behind RB Hunt Elementary School

“Solid Waste staff have been working tirelessly over the past couple of months due to the recent storms,” said Todd Grant, Utilities Director. “We appreciate the Solid Waste Division’s efforts to support our City during this time. During the holiday season it is important that staff have the opportunity to spend time with family and loved ones.”  

Parking in the Historic Downtown Parking Facility will be free on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24. City owned parking lots and on-street parking is free on all national holidays, such as Thanksgiving Day, except for the Castillo de San Marcos. Drivers are urged to confirm if a lot is owned by the City and not a private operator, as many of those lots have strict towing policies. Parking will be enforced for all vehicles parked illegally, including in areas reserved for delivery, franchised sightseeing vehicles and taxis, or vehicles on sidewalks or against yellow curbs. Please note, regular parking fees will resume on Friday, November 25.

Questions about waste pickup and additional information may be directed to the City's Solid Waste Division at 904.825.1049, Monday-Friday, during normal business hours; or contact Todd Grant, Utilities Director at 904-315-8499 or via email.  For information regarding collections services for St. Johns County, please call 904-827-6980.  For information regarding collection service for St. Augustine Beach, please call 904-471-1119.

Media inquiries should be directed to Melissa Wissel, Communications Director, at 904.293.3307 or via email.
