New Yard Cart Program

Yard Waste Collection

St. Peters' Earth Centre was opened in 1992 after a Missouri law banned yard waste from landfills. The facility accepts and processes brush, grass clippings, leaves, and other organic material into mulch and compost. The City of St. Peters also provides weekly yard waste collection, except from approximately the middle of January through the beginning of March (exact dates can be found in the City's UpFront and My Hometown newsletters each year). Yard waste is picked up at curbside once a week from single-family residences in St. Peters and brought to Earth Centre for processing. LEARN ABOUT OUR YARD WASTE CARTS.

  • If your trash is collected on Mondays & Thursdays, yard waste pickup is on Wednesdays.
  • If your trash is collected on Tuesdays & Fridays, yard waste pickup is on Mondays.

All yard waste MUST be placed in a City of St. Peters yard waste cart. LEARN ABOUT CHANGES FOR THE 2014 SEASON (pdf format).


  • DO NOT place sod, dirt, rocks, or stones in the yard waste cart. These items are not accepted at Earth Centre because they can damage the machinery used for composting.
  • Place yard waste carts at the curb by 6:30 a.m. on collection days.

Note: Bulky brush not over 8 feet in length may be scheduled for collection during your quarterly bulky item collection.


Yard Waste Carts


New Yard Cart ProgramYard waste carts are provided to St. Peters residents who prefer a more convenient disposal option for yard waste. Each single-family St. Peters household can get one free cart. Additional carts are available for an annual fee of just $15 each.  For more information, please call 636-970-1456. 

Residents are required to place yard waste including grass, leaves and brush inside the yard waste cart for curbside disposal. Yard waste bags will no longer be picked up. The only exception is that each year during the months of October, November and December, you can set out yard waste bags filled with leaves only for curbside collection.
