St. Peters residents and non-residents alike can recycle their live Christmas trees for free at St. Peters Earth Centre now through Jan. 17, 2021.
Please keep in mind that for the tree to be recycled, all decorations, lights, plastic bags, and stands must be removed from the tree. Please do not wrap or tie the tree. Trees containing decorations, lights, plastic bags, tape, or wrapping will not be accepted.
After Jan. 17, there is a $5 charge to drop off a Christmas tree without a Resident Privilege Card.
The public can also take trees to the temporary designated drop-off center at Laurel Park in the upper parking lot through Jan. 17.
If residents would like to have their Christmas tree picked up at their home, they can cut it in half and place it in the yard waste cart for yard waste pickup on their regular pickup day through Jan. 13.
Just a reminder: Yard waste pickup will be suspended during the month of February and resumes the first full week of March. This practice allows for vehicle maintenance/repair while saving fuel.
St. Peters Earth Centre is located at 115 Ecology Drive in St. Peters, off Mid Rivers Mall Drive just north of I-70.
