Recycle bins set up in historic downtown St. Charles

Historic St. Charles was a downtown district without any public recycle containers - until Wednesday, when 37 bins were placed on Main Street and in Frenchtown.

The bins were purchased with grant money from the St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District. The city received the $15,000 grant from the district in 2008. Funds for the grant program come from a surcharge on waste disposed of in sanitary and demolition landfills.
