Resident Solid Waste & Yard Waste Information
Trash & recycling collection is on both Tuesdays & Fridays. Yard waste collection is on Wednesdays. Only Cottleville solid/yard waste containers can be used for pickup - no privately owned containers due to liability issues. Additional yard waste can be dropped off at the Earth Center, located at 135 Ecology Drive in St. Peters, at no charge to City of Cottleville Residents with Resident Privilege Card. Resident Privilege Cards can be obtained at the Recycle City administration office located at 135 Ecology Drive
in St. Peters.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: Containers must be at the curb by 6:30 am with the lid opening facing the street; ALL trash and tied blue bags must be inside the container. Containers need to be placed five feet from any obstruction, i.e., mailboxes, parked vehicles, basketball hoops, etc., to prevent damage from the automated collection arm.
Dirt and rocks are classified as solid waste items. These items interfere with the yard waste machinery. Please put these items in your solid waste container for collection.
*Lawn bags are not routinely collected; except during October, November, & December; filled with only leaves.
Additional yard waste options can be obtained at the St. Peters Earth Center.
