Blue Cart Crew and Green Cup Challenge
The beginning of a New Year always brings up thoughts in my mind of New Year’s Resolutions. Going forward; what can I do to have a positive impact on the world around me? When I was appointed as the Ward 3 Alderman I was also honored to join the St. Peters Green Team as the Alderman Representative. We have a lot of great things going on with our recycling program and future ideas for environmental sustainability. You may have heard about two programs recently: The Blue Cart Crew and the Green Cup Challenge. These are completely separate programs.
The Blue Cart Crew directly affects your recycling service and your costs as a resident and St. Peters taxpayer. The more households that join the Crew and recycle means we spend less on putting trash into the landfill and our City makes more money by selling recycled goods. This keeps your trash and recycling fees among the lowest in the entire St. Louis region. The Green Cup Challenge focuses more on environmental sustainability and shows you and your family easy ways to make changes that add up in a big way toward helping our environment. This project stretches across our communities with organizations and groups working together to make a positive environmental impact in our region.
Please take a moment to look into both of these initiatives and let’s “Put the Landfill on a Diet!” St. Peters will continue to be leaders in the area for our green efforts!
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN REIMER:
A Fresh Perspective
How do families choose a community? This is a question I’ve thought about a lot both personally as our family chose a new home and professionally, because helping families making the choice of a great place to live is part of my job description.
When we decided the time was right to move our family had 3 main criteria we were looking for: a comfortable move-in ready home, home value/affordability, and a quality school district. As a real estate agent, I had the opportunity to view many homes throughout the region; more than most buyers would probably care to. As we searched one thing became abundantly clear. St. Peters was an amazing location with everything we could ask for and more. We continued to be pulled back here as our home search continued. We found an amazing home in an amazing area and we could not be happier with where we are.
St. Peters is extremely accessible. This wasn’t initially part of the criteria but when drive times were factored in it became a very desirable feature of the area. The amount of green space also came to the forefront of what we were looking for since many locations we were looking at didn’t offer much in the way of trees and nature areas. There are many parks and trails to offer refuge to those of us who need a dose of nature on a regular basis. I was also very impressed with the amount of shopping, food venues, and children’s entertainment hot spots so nearby. If you want convenience, St. Peters is definitely the place to be. The best part is we have all this while still maintaining a hometown feel and numerous events and amenities the residents can take advantage of.
When we moved here two years ago I knew we made a fantastic decision on location but I continue to be impressed with what St. Peters has to offer. It is a very attractive place for people to move to and enjoy no matter what stage of life they are in. I have planted my roots here; fitting since as it is the first Tree City U.S.A. in St. Charles County. I am so proud to say I am a St. Peters resident and I am energized to serve this great community.
