Celebrate Earth Month with the City of Largo

Join the City of Largo in celebrating Earth and Arbor Day in every corner of the community this April. From recycling right, reducing food waste, or hosting a neighborhood cleanup, Largo has several ways for you to get involved. Be sure to follow the City on social media throughout the month for tips, resources, and ways to show your support. 

 Keep Largo Litter-Free 
A little litter is a big problem. Keep our award-winning parks and neighborhoods clean by joining a cleanup event with Keep Pinellas Beautiful or consider applying for a Neighborhood Grant to support a beautification project in your community.

Free Document Shredding & Recycling  
Join the City of Largo for the next ShredFest event on Saturday, April 13 at the Starkey Road Recycling Center (1551 Starkey Rd) from 9am-12pm or until the trucks are full. This easy, drive-through free event allows residents to bring up to five boxes of documents for free and secure on-site shredding and recycling. 

Receive a Free Tree 
Celebrate Arbor Day with a free tree giveaway at McGough Nature Park on Saturday, April 27 from 9am-1pm. Take a nature walk and say hello to McGough’s resident animals, too!

Solar 101 Co-Op
Solar United Neighbors has created a local solar co-op that offers Pinellas residents and business owners the opportunity to purchase and install solar panels for their homes at a reduced rate. Interested in learning more? Attend a Solar 101 virtual session or visit SolarUnitedNeighbors.org/Pinellas.

Discover the Night 
Help reduce light pollution in the community and see more stars in our night sky. Join our community to celebrate Largo’s Dark Sky by turning off your lights for 15 minutes and Discover the Night. Step outside, look, listen, and share what you see with the City on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the hashtag #LargoDarkSky. Headed to a virtual call? Show your support and download a branded Largo Dark Sky week virtual background
