Bulk trash item collection is provided at the curb on the resident’s normal collection day. A collection has a two item limit and is to be arranged by the resident calling the Republic Services Customer Service Center at 636-947-5959. While many items qualify to be collected for free, some items (such as items considered to be hazardous, tires, and concrete) are not collected while other items (such as electronics, appliances, and construction materials) incur a fee. Electronics and appliances can be disposed of for free by participating in an electronics/metals drop off event held every other month in Paul A. Schroeder City Park. Information concerning that event can be found here.
