Save a Tree & Plant a Tree at ‘Shred It & Forget It’ Recycling Event May 5

April 10, 2018


Help save a tree and plant a tree at the spring “Shred It & Forget It” recycling event from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, May 5, 2018, at the St. Peters Health and Environmental Operations Building. 


Save a tree by bringing unneeded documents to securely destroy and recycle, a free service for St. Peters and Cottleville residents. Simply place the documents you want to shred in cardboard banker-size boxes, limit five per vehicle. Additional boxes can be shredded at a charge of $5 per box. Non-residents can also recycle documents for a fee of $5 per box, cash only. 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.


A current Resident Privilege Card must be presented to receive the free service. St. Peters Resident Privilege Cards can be obtained at City Hall, the Rec-Plex and Recycle City. 


Then, while you’re saving trees by dropping off your paper for recycling, why not pick up a tree seedling to plant? The City’s Parks, Recreation and Arts Advisory Board will once again hand out free Dogwood, Blackgum and Redbud seedlings at the Shred It & Forget It event, available while supplies last.


St. Peters Health and Environmental Operations Building is located behind Recycle City at 135 Ecology Drive in St. Peters.
