St. Louis County Trash Collection and Recycling

St. Louis County Government's Trash District Implementation Team has finalized its proposal to upgrade waste hauling services for one- and two-family homes in unincorporated residential neighborhoods.

Key developments include:

> Establishing a total of eight trash districts in unincorporated St. Louis County.

> Establishing a provision that allows subdivisions - as certified by their Board of Trustees, Board of Directors or Condominium Board, etc. - with an active form of governance to "opt out" of the district program if a simple majority of their households agrees. These subdivisions will be able to "opt out" until February 1, 2008. Forms will be available online and at all County Government satellite offices.

> Requesting that the County Council amend an existing ordinance to give County haulers an additional three and a half months to comply with the County's minimum level of service (once a week trash removal, once a week recycling and twice-yearly bulk pickups). Currently, that level of service must be offered by January 1, 2008.

> Establishing that the trash district program will begin no later than Sept. 1, 2008.

> Determining that yard waste removal - with a minimum of one quarter's service - will be an optional service offered by the hauler.
