Residential Curbside Trash Collection

The City of St. Peters provides residents with regular curbside trash collection. Visit our Trash, Recycling & Yard Waste home page to find your collection schedule and get the STP Collects app so you never miss collection day!

  • Use ONLY the container furnished by the City. All refuse must go inside this container. Place the container AT THE CURB by 6:30 a.m. on collection days, but not earlier than 6 p.m. of the previous evening. The wheels and the handle should face your home.
  • Keep the container 4 feet from any obstructions (i.e., car, mailboxes, streetlights, etc.) so the collection truck can easily approach the container.
  • Bring the container forward past the curb if parked cars are a constant problem.
  • Be a good neighbor. When not in use, please store your container “out of sight” from the street. Your neighborhood will look nicer. You will reduce scavenging and decrease the risk of your container being stolen.
  • Regularly scheduled curbside trash collection is for items that fit inside your trash cart. Items too large for your container may be scheduled for bulky item pick-up. Learn how you can schedule bulky item collection services.
