St. Peters/Cottleville Residents are Invited to Shred It and Forget It
St. Peters and Cottleville residents will have an opportunity to securely destroy unneeded documents on Saturday, May 6, from 9 a.m.-noon. A large mobile shredder will be at St. Peters’ Health and Environmental Operations Building, 135 Ecology Drive, in St. Peters.
This service is FREE for St. Peters and Cottleville resident households only. A Resident Privilege Card is required. Resident Privilege Cards can be obtained at City Hall, the Rec-Plex and Recycle City.
Simply place the documents you want to destroy in cardboard boxes and bring them to the Health and Environmental Operations Building. Please make sure that the banker-size boxes are not too heavy to lift. There is a limit of five banker-size boxes per vehicle. All of the shredded material will be recycled, including the cardboard boxes if they are not needed back.
Do not bring computer discs or hanging file rods. If you can tear it, then you can shred it using this service. The documents may contain staples or paper clips.
People who do not live in St. Peters or Cottleville can participate; however, there will be a fee of $5 per box, cash only for non-residents. The five-box limit applies.
After dropping off your paper for shredding, pick up a tree seedling to plant. The City’s Parks, Recreation & Arts Advisory Board will once again be participating in this annual Arbor Day activity. This year Flowering Dogwood, Redbud and Swamp White Oak seedlings will be available while they last.
The trees will be available from 9-10 a.m. for St. Peters residents only with a Resident Privilege Card. After 10 a.m., the trees will be given out on a first come, first served basis.
