Can I opt out of recycling?

Only if you really, really want to.  Recycling is part of the City’s comprehensive waste services plan which includes trash, yard waste, recycling, bulk pickup and monthly dropoffs at the transfer stations.  To opt out of ALL City waste services contact the Citizens’ Service Bureau online at or by phone at 314-622-4800.  You will need proof of contract with a private waste hauler.
