The Blue Cart Crew Needs You
Subscribe Now to Recycle Curbside in St. Peters!
The City of St. Peters’ curbside recycling program has moved to a subscription-only service. Enroll now to be part of the new Blue Cart Crew!
Or, you can call 636-970-1456 to enroll.
There is no fee to subscribe.
When you join the Blue Cart Crew, we’ll replace your green trash cart with a Blue Cart that you will continue to use for both trash and Blue Bag recycling. Or, if you want to keep your green trash cart, we will place a Blue Cart Crew sticker on your green cart.
JULY 14, 2020: If you are a Blue Cart Crew member who has requested a Blue Cart, but you have a green cart with a Blue Cart sticker, please continue to place your green cart at the curb on collection days until your Blue Cart arrives. Blue Cart delivery could be as late as 4 p.m., so please leave your green cart with sticker out at the curb until 4 p.m. each collection day. Your Blue Cart should arrive by the end of summer 2020.
Nearly 11,000 households in St. Peters (more than half of our single-family households) are Blue Cart Crew members. Thank you for recycling!

By joining the Blue Cart Crew, you’ll be part of St. Peters’ recycling effort that helps to keep our trash costs low and give recyclable materials a new life. If you have not enrolled in the Blue Cart Crew, you no longer can use curbside recycling. Please enroll if you would like to continue to recycle.
Why did we switch to the Blue Cart Crew program?
The new subscription-only Blue Cart Crew program will cut our costs for recycling with Blue Bags. The cost to the City of St. Peters for Blue Bags grew from around $50,000 a year to about $190,000 a year over the past decade without the benefit of an increase in recycling. This increase in cost is because many people used Blue Bags for regular trash or other purposes besides recycling.
What does it mean for me if I join the Blue Cart Crew?
When you join the Blue Cart Crew, you pledge to recycle with Blue Bags. You can recycle by placing containers in one Blue Bag and paper products in another Blue Bag. Just place your recycling Blue Bags in your cart with regular trash bags. Learn more about St. Peters’ dual stream recycling success.
When you join the Blue Cart Crew, you will receive Blue Bags for recycling. When you run out of Blue Bags, tie a Blue Bag (or any type of bag) on the handle of your Blue Cart (or green cart with Blue Cart Crew sticker). Our staff will drop off a new roll of Blue Bags when they see that you’ve tied a bag on your cart.
Blue Cart Crew members promise to use Blue Bags only for recycling and agree to periodic compliance checks. As a member of the Blue Cart Crew, you're automatically entered into our Blue Bag Recycling Contest!
What if I don’t enroll in the Blue Cart Crew program?
You won’t be able to recycle curbside in St. Peters. You will not have access to Blue Bags. To recycle, you may bring your recyclable items to Aytes Community Recycling Center at Recycle City, 131 Ecology Drive.
