Yard waste, which consists of grass clippings, twigs and leaves is collected by Republic Services at the curb on your trash day.
Yard waste can either be placed in Republic Services bags or unlined trash cans with a yard waste sticker. Bags are available at the Government Center (300 N. New Ballas Rd.) and Dierbergs for a small fee. Bundles of twigs or branches tied at both ends and Christmas trees must also have a yard waste sticker to be collected. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected.
Republic Services also offers 90-gallon containers to residents for an additional fee; this fee also includes unlimited yard waste pick up service. Call Republic Services at (636) 947-5959 to sign up for this additional service.
