Yard Waste Services

 

YardWasteTruck

The City of St. Peters provides both curbside yard waste collection for residents as well as yard waste drop-off, processing and lawn/garden product sales at our Earth Centre yard waste and compost center at 115 Ecology Dr. Do NOT place yard waste in your regular trash cart or in Blue Bags. Missouri state law prohibits the disposal of yard waste in landfills.

Curbside Yard Waste Collection

The City of St. Peters provides weekly curbside yard waste collection for single-family homes in St. Peters. This service is provided throughout most of the year, with the exception of a winter break during the month of February. CLICK HERE FOR COLLECTION SCHEDULES.

Yard Waste Carts

Each single-family St. Peters household may use one City of St. Peters yard waste cart for curbside collection at no cost to you. These brown carts provide an easy way to collect yard waste and place it curbside for our automated trucks to pick up on collection day. We require that our customers use these yard waste carts for curbside disposal of yard waste, with some exceptions detailed below under “Yard Waste Bags.”

Yes! Put in My Yard Waste Cart: Grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs up to 3 feet long, weeds, garden waste. These items will be processed at our Earth Centre yard waste and compost center.

NO! Do Not Put in My Yard Waste Cart: Garbage and trash, dirt, rocks, sod, plastic bags, animal waste, wood or lumber.

When Do I Place My Cart at the Curb? If your trash is collected on Mondays & Thursdays, yard waste pickup is on Wednesdays. If your trash is collected on Tuesdays & Fridays, yard waste pickup is on Mondays. Place yard waste carts at the curb by 6:30 a.m. on collection days, but no earlier than 6 p.m. the previous evening. Holidays may affect the date your yard waste is collected. Check our collection schedules to find all of your home’s yard waste service dates.

Can I Get More Yard Waste Carts? Yes, we offer additional yard waste carts for an annual fee of $15 per cart. To order, call 636-970-1456.

Yard Waste Bags

Normally, the City of St. Peters requires that customers use our yard waste carts for curbside service. However, there are times of the year when we allow exceptions for yard waste bags:
  • During the fall months of October, November and December, you may use yard waste bags for LEAVES ONLY for curbside collection.
  • In March, customers may use yard waste bags for curbside disposal of leaves and garden materials
  • A maximum of 20 yard waste bags may be placed curbside on collection day.
