We’ve put together a plan for St. Peters' yard waste collection that will save you money on your utility bills while maintaining your same level of service and improving efficiency.


The plan goes into effect March 1, 2021.  The only potential change for customers is that your day of the week for yard waste collection service might change.


To see if your yard waste day will change, go online to and enter your address in the “My Schedule” feature of the STP COLLECTS widget. You will see all of your upcoming trash collection dates.


Download the STP COLLECTS app onto your mobile device, and you can get trash day reminders so that you never miss Trash Day again—including Yard Waste!


Why will some people’s yard waste day change?

The new plan for yard waste collection will use fewer trucks, which will save money and help keep your City of St. Peters utility bills the lowest in the region. This change means that our team will spread out service and collect yard waste on four days a week instead of two days a week. Some customers’ yard waste day will change as we coordinate collection across the City. Each household in St. Peters receives yard waste collection service once per week (the same as before this change).


Will other trash service be affected?

No. This change will NOT affect your trash collection or Blue Bag collection.


Curbside yard waste pickup is suspended in St. Peters for the month of February 2021. During this break in curbside service, St. Peters Earth Centre will continue to accept yard waste. Earth Centre yard waste disposal hours for February are 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday. Residents who present a valid Resident Privilege Card may drop off a limited amount of yard waste at no charge.
