Light strands should not be disposed in recycle bins 

The City of St. Augustine reminds residents to set unadorned holiday trees curbside starting January 10, 2024, for pick-up with regularly scheduled yard waste collections.  Light strands should not be disposed of in household recycle bins; however, they will be accepted at the Used Oil and Electronics Recycle Event on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.

In conjunction with St. Johns County Utilities, the City of St. Augustine, will host a special community recycle event from 7:30am-2:30pm at two convenient drop points: 25 W. Castillo Drive (Francis Field downtown) and at 840 West 16th Street on Anastasia Island, behind the SJC Parks and Recreation Office.

The City of St. Augustine accepts recycle materials (e.g., outdated and broken electronics, such as light strands) daily during regular business hours, at the Solid Waste compound, located at 601 Riberia St.

For more information about holiday lights and tree recycling, contact Solid Waste at 904.825.1049, ext. 1, or send an email to
