How to Dispose of Yard Waste

 

Earth-Centre-yard-waste-drop-off 

 

Yard waste includes mixed yard waste, brush, and tree limbs (see material sizing and other requirements in chart below). Wood chips may be mixed or clean. You may place these items in a brown yard waste cart for curbside pickup (LEARN MORE ABOUT CURBSIDE YARD WASTE COLLECTION), or you may bring these items to Earth Centre for processing. DO NOT place yard waste in your regular solid waste trash cart or in Blue Bags. Missouri State law prohibits the disposal of yard waste in landfills.

Lumber, landscape timbers, railroad ties, rock, dirt, concrete, asphalt, plastic, or metal are NOT yard waste and should not be set out for curbside yard waste pickup or brought to Earth Centre. Some of these items may be eligible for bulky trash pickup. Call 636-970-1456, ext. 1410 to schedule a bulky trash pickup and to find out which of these items may be included.
