How to Recycle


Recycling in St. Louis is easy!  It takes just a few small steps.

STEP 1

Find out what you can recycle.

STEP 2

Designate a space in your home for a recycling bin and place clean, dry recyclables there until you’re ready to take them out for collection.

STEP 3

Rinse or wipe off food residue, empty liquids. (Tip: If you can’t get any more food or drink out of the container, it’s usually ready to recycle!  Be sure to reattach the lid!)

STEP 4

Flatten all cardboard.

STEP 5

Empty your recyclables loose into your City Dumpster or City Rollcart, or take them to a nearby Dropoff Recycling Site.
