Environmental Services is Changing Their Hours
On Monday, February 9, the Environmental Services Department office hours will change to 7am to 4pm. The change is being made to the office hours to align with the hours of the Environmental Control Division who operate from 7:30am to 4pm and the Collections System Division and Reclaimed Water Division who operate from 6:30am to 3pm. The level of service we provide will not change. The current practice for after hours emergencies will continue. Customers that need to report after hours emergencies will be directed by our telephone system to call the police dispatch line who will be in touch with the on-call technician.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Public Health and Facilities: A Toilet is Not a Trash Can

As people prepare to stay home during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, basic household items such as toilet paper are in high-demand at local stores. The City of Largo and Pinellas County Utilities would like to remind our residents that while you may be using alternatives to toilet paper during this time, popular bathroom wipes and pre-moistened towelettes often advertised as 'flushable' are heavily contributing to clogs and backups in our sanitary sewer system.

Items such as wet wipes, femine hygiene products, paper towels, diapers, as well as floss, do not easily break down and can lead to blockage and overlows sending raw sewage into homes, yards, and waterways. This leads to costly repairs and damages. Remember to stick to the three Ps: Pee, Poop, and [toilet] Paper. Check out this video and remember a toilet is not a trash can!

Please visit Largo.com/COVID19 for the latest updates and information regarding the City's response to COVID-19.
